Enter artistic time tunnel

TWEED art-lovers are set to travel to the future when they view the latest exhibition at the Tweed River Art Gallery.

The Time Travel: Reimagining the Past exhibition opened in May, and tomorrow residents will have the chance to hear about the creation of the works and the inspiration of the artists.

Art works on display include quirky works by ceramicist Penny Byrne, delicate yet powerful drawings by Danie Mellor, prints by Rew Hanks and four different portraits of Ned Kelly.

Gallery assistant director Anne Schardin said the exhibition should not be missed, and all members of the community would enjoy the free exhibition floor talk.

“It will be a fabulous talk and you don't have to know much about art to enjoy this exhibition,” Ms Schardin said.

“One of the visiting artists is Kate O'Brien. She is an emerging artist from Brisbane who draws upon her love of art history, vintage fashion and textiles to take the viewer on a visual journey through time.

“I really urge people to come along on Sunday as this will be a very lively, humorous and interesting talk.”

The exhibition floor talk will begin at 11am.
