Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Insights from the campaign trail

The election is almost here. Hooray. It’s time we got down with Elvis Presley’s suggestion of ‘A little less conversation, a little more action, please.’ I’m a big fan of action. I’ve been at this for 14 months, and as a writer who holds the ear of the community each week I’ve been cognizant not to turn this into a hostage situation.

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.
