The Friends of the Tweed River Art Gallery are organising a day trip to the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane to view Matisse: Drawing Life on Tuesday 14 February.

This comprehensive exhibition of Henri Matisse’s prints, drawings and illustrated books includes more than 300 works.

Matisse is widely recognised as one of the 20th century’s greatest artists. The works explore his daily art practice and provide insight into the themes and subjects to which he turned repeatedly during his long career.

Guides at GoMA will escort the group through the exhibition, reflecting on his travels and life experiences with other noted artists such as Gauguin.

The bus first stops at the Tweed River Art Gallery at 8.30am DST and then at Florence Street Tweed Heads at 9am to collect passengers. The reverse occurs when we arrive back at approximately 5pm DST.

Cost is $46, which covers return bus fare and entry to the Guided Tour at GoMA.

If you would like to join in this enjoyable please phone Lyn Stewart 07 5524 8815 or the Tweed River Art Gallery 02 6670 2790.
