Wednesday 18 January
The Hungry Hikers planned a visit to the Margaret Olley exhibition of floral art at the Murwillumbah / Tweed Regional Art Centre.
An early start gave us time for breakfast at Kingscliff and a walk along the foreshore.
The view over the Tweed River, from the art gallery, is exceptional.
The art gallery houses the recreation of Sydney artist, Margaret Olley's home studio. Our visit on this occasion was to view a special exhibit of Olley's floral art.
The top photo in this collage shows pieces from Olley's studio arranged as Olley would have, for her painting below.

A beautiful area is set aside for visitors to be artistic.
Stencilled flower outlines, coloured pencils and scissors were provided at one table. It was interesting to see how each flower differed.
There were two arrangements for anyone wanting to do a still life.
I rather liked these pottery arrangements. [Flat to the wall]
There were several other exhibitions. Our guided tour made them come to life.
