Tweed Heads, Terri Bradley
I am wondering why people do not know about the art gallery that is at Garrick Street Kirra Hill. It is behind the iron Eagle which people also do not seem to know about. I am thinking they drive around with their eyes shut.
I have had an exhibition of my pastel art for two weeks there (May 20 to May 31) and have sat in for several hours a day to be able to talk to visitors but have been bitterly disappointed by the lack of visitors. I am wondering if it is due to Council not opening on a weekend when people usually look for somewhere to go or if it is a lack of advertising by GCCC.
There are exhibitions on every weekday by various local artists and it is a shame if people do not support us. Myself I have had notices in the local papers but perhaps I need to do more than that. I cannot afford large ads being a pensioner so I put notices where I can hoping they will be read.
A lot of work goes into setting up displays and take most of the day so it is very disappointing when nobody even comes to look. There is a lack of places where we can display in Tweed, I think Kirra is the only one. It is a lovely gallery and I had a professional hang my paintings so it does look good. Come on Tweed support the locals please.
