A group of artists with disabilities are preparing for their maiden art expo which will be held in Mullumbimby next month.
The five artists are all clients of REDinc Byron Shire, which has been serving the Byron Shire community for nearly ten years, and recently moved to Mullumbimby.
The artists, most of whom have autism and physical disabilities, have been working with art therapists to prepare their works to go on display.
REDinc. Byron Shire Manager, Stacey Cannicott said the expo would take place at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby, on Friday, 10 November from 6pm.
‘There has been some truly amazing art produced by the REDinc. artists with a disability and this event is an opportunity for the local community to come and enjoy their work,’ Ms Cannicott said.
‘We welcome locals to come and join us for drinks, nibbles and art.’
REDinc., established nearly 30 years ago by families, continues to serve the communities of the North Coast of NSW; with venues in both Lismore and Mullumbimby.
The Mullumbimby branch currently has 19 clients.
