Thursday Doors : Through the glass doors…

I visit the Murwillumbah Art Gallery quite often. The most recent visit I show cased Margaret Olley and her amazing art and the studio she worked in.

But the building is also a delight to walk around and as I passed these glass doors the beauty of the light and the shadows the late afternoon sun created I thought was also a work of art.

Stepping outside on to the deck the stunning scenery of the Tweed Valley unfolds before me and has me trying to capture the picture perfect art of nature.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time)

  1. If anyone had that view, they’d want ‘glass’ doors too. Beautiful. 🙂

  2. Keep writing about Margaret Olley. I WILL get there. It seems to be a rule that art gallery or museum buildings are also in some ways a work of art, and you’ve demonstrated it yet again here.

    • Well when you do get here Meg we will have to have a get together. Wait till you see what I found last weekend.

  3. Wonderful view and I love the shadows, Pauline.


  4. What a view! layer upon layer. I swear you live in Paradise.

  5. What fabulous views and such a great shot through the glass doors – and those shadows – very artistic, no doubt about it. 🙂

  6. What a view – right off of a postcard! Naturally glass doors are the only way to go in a place like that. Just wonderful 🙂

    • They also have Windows angled right round the building to make the most of the view. I love visiting

  7. What an amazing view and a perfect place for a gallery. It looks more temperate than tropical?

    • You are right Gilly, it is right on the border between sub tropical and temperate zones, so can go either way. But being under a mountain range it does not get droughts or extreme weather, it is a perfect climate

  8. Incredibly beautiful. I’m working on Oz for 2018!

    • Hope you get to our area we would love to meet you both.2018 is Commonwealth games and Gold Coast is the host so August will be crawling with visitors. Unless you like sport I would suggest coming here any other month.

  9. I read somewhere yesterday that people are selling ‘fresh air’ from the Tweed Valley to the Chinese and it’s making them a small fortune – wow (why didn’t I think of that) 😉 Great pictures, Pauline 😀

  10. Wow, what a view! I totally agree with the architect glass doors! I love the long shadows of late afternoon too.

  11. I can see why these glass doors stopped you in your tracks – they are so nice P…
    wonder woman would be proud – ha! (get it?)

  12. What a gorgeous setting for art work! Its always fun to find art displayed in environments that are exciting in and of themselves, for their location or their view or architecture. This one seemd to combine all of those features.


  13. Great setting , and that view is beautiful x
