About the Exhibition at Tweed Regional Gallery

2021 will mark the fifty year anniversary of the Murwillumbah Potters Inc., located at the old Fernvale School on Fernvale Road, just outside of Murwillumbah. The Murwillumbah Potters were formed in 1971 to encourage and provide a space for beginners and experienced potters and creators to share skills and support each other. Earth ‘n’ Fire will celebrate the history and strong continuity of the club showcasing the pottery of the club’s tutors – both past and present – and a selection of creations fired in traditional wood, gas and raku kilns. The exhibition will demonstrate the diversity of styles and skills of members, with a diverse selection of functional, decorative, sculptural and unique ceramics.

Earth ‘n’ Fire: Fifty Years of Murwillumbah Potters is on display at Tweed Regional Gallery Gallery from Friday 5 March to Sunday 2 May 2021.
