Government fails to support dying at home in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.

Mullumbimby’s iconic Art Piece Gallery will soon be closing its doors. Gallery owner Nadine Abensur admits that this has been a very difficult decision.

‘I haven’t come to the decision lightly and still change my mind every day. I am always open to a miracle! But it’s no secret that times have been very difficult for conventional retail and with indications of harder times ahead, I struggle to see how the gallery can survive.’

So after nearly five years and more than 50 shows with well over 100 represented and guest artists, it seems a real shame that Mullumbimby has lost a vibrant art space.

The Gallery has its last show on Saturday so if there’s a work you’ve wanted to purchase, now is your chance! 6pm start.
