Tweed Regional Gallery
Claude Monet’s Meules, milieu du jour [Haystacks, midday] from 1890 is the first of five works to be shared with the Tweed Regional Gallery as part of the National Gallery of Australia’s Sharing the National Collection initiative. The remaining works will be shared with the Tweed from February 2024.
Meules, milieu du jour [Haystacks, midday] 1890 is a glorious work from Monet’s Haystacks series, filled with dazzling light and luminous colour.
The Sharing the National Collection initiative will see major works of art from the National Gallery of Australia’s collection exhibited across regional and suburban communities.
This work of art is on long-term loan from the National Gallery of Australia with support from the Australian Government as part of Sharing the National Collection.
Robyn Davidson: Unfinished Woman
Byron Writers Festival is thrilled to present Robyn Davidson, author of the international bestseller Tracks, for an intimate conversation with Zacharey Jane about her memoir Unfinished Woman.
Hailed as ‘an absorbing record of human endeavour and courage’, Unfinished Woman is an unforgettable investigation of time and memory, and a powerful interrogation of how we can live with and find beauty in the uncertainty and strangeness of being.
Join Davidson as she discusses her brave and revealing memoir, which asks the eternal question: how do we learn to be ‘at home everywhere’?
Don’t miss this special event with one of the most adventurous writers in Australian literature.
Friday 8 December, 6pm at Byron Theatre.
Bookings essential via byronwritersfestival.com/whats-on
Step into the enchanting world of master potter Suvira as he unveils the summer showcase at his studio on Left Bank Road. Marvel at the delicate nuances of his smaller works, inviting you into moments of pure enjoyment. These treasures, perfect for special episodes, showcase the richness of wood-fired ceramic artistry. In contrast, be captivated by the grandeur of Suvira’s larger vessels, where the dance of flames leaves intricate ash deposits, creating a visual symphony of texture and form. Join him as Suvira opens the doors to his creative sanctuary. A journey through pottery, where tradition meets innovation.
