Art Deco style Curious Art Cooperative Gallery at Chinderah, near Kingscliff NSW

The Art Deco style Curious Art Cooperative Gallery at Chinderah, near Kingscliff NSW is located opposite the Tweed River with panoramic views across the river to the Caldera region of Wollumbin (Mt. Warning)

The Gallery has panoramic view across the Tweed River to Wollumbin/Mt Warning. The extinct volcano dominates and has fashined the surrounding landscape.This photo shows the ever changing nature of this iconic mountain.

The Gallery opened in 2001 and is the brain/love child of Ness Bryant/Michael Bryant/Libby Mills/Larraine Bryant and East Writer who made it official when he declared in the predawn hours of one of the many lost art weekends that we “should get serious and open our own art gallery!”

However it wasn’t long before many other artists joined up with the growing movement and in September 2001 Curious Art Gallery opened the doors of the new Gallery at Chinderah, near Kingscliff, NSW.

Curious Art has consistently endorsed Cooperatives as a viable business model that supports social responsibility. The year 2012 has been officially proclaimed  by the United Nations as the International Year of Cooperatives.

Seven new exhibitions will show in 2013.
