The Dream Makers

We had a dream! The genesis of an art movement concept was developed over many months in the Winter of 2000. Libby Mills, Ness Bryant and Michael Bryant brought the dream to a reality with the help of over twenty artists forming an Art Cooperative in the Tweed Shire. 

The Dream Makers of Curious Art –
(with a lot more than a little help from their friends)

From a conversation to a Ten year old sustainable living entity.

During the winter of 2000 Vanessa Bryant,  Michael Bryant and Libby Mills had a conservation – actually several over several months.
As a very noted dreammaker once proclaimed : I had dream…
So did these three. True not with with the lofty history changing ideals MLK had but altruistic enough for the bush nonetheless.

Gather a group of artistically minded inviduals together, form an art movement just like they used to do way back in the late 18th and early 19th Century.  Oh and find some kind of permanent exhibition space for whole lot of newbie artists. How hard can that be?

Well like any projects that stand the test of time they need help from fellow artists and professionals in the industry. Advice from people  like Tafe Art teacher Lorraine Abernethy and the then Tweed Regional Art Gallery Director Gary Corbett proved invaluable and helped shape the structure of the Cooperative. As did many patrons of the arts for their support.

By Septemeber 2001 the dream was realized. Over twenty artists came together and opened their own art little gallery with an exhibition that talked about to this day.

Curious Art Cooperative was formed, registered and opened their own art gallery space in Chinderah, NSW near Kingscliff. It has provided a sustainable unique cultural assest to the Tweed Shire.

Many thanks to the exhibiting artists during TEN
