Visitors to the Tweed River Art Gallery in Murwillumbah could well be asking how long is a piece of string when viewing one of the latest shows going on exhibition today, called UnRavelling, featuring Byron Bay artist Rebecca Kinsey, who recently returned from New York, where she took part in a series of collaborative projects. The exhibition, running till 12 August, explores, through painting, drawing, sewing, performance and video, Rebecca’s experience of travelling between regional NSW and New York City.

She will officially open her exhibition tonight from 6.30pm, when another major exhibition also goes on show, called The Glass: Michael Zavros, to be officially opened by celebrity food critic Leo Schofield. Artist and curator Rona Green will also talk about the current print exhibition called Familiar Unfamiliar.
