Art has taken Murwillumbah by storm with twice as many people as hoped for turning up to enjoy the extravaganza and you still have a chance to get out there and take part.
Like Master Chef for artists
The Art Battle between Australian and visiting Canadian artists set to take place tonight has been sold out – but that doesn’t mean you can’t get close to the action. While the Art Battle, being held upstairs at the Hutchison’s Pop-up Gallery, 63 Wollumbin Street, is sold out you are still welcome to join them downstairs for a great evening. There will be drinks, cocktails, music and fun to be had from 6pm this evening said one of the organisers Pat Miller.
‘The streets of Murwillumbah are alive,’ said Pat with a huge smile.
‘We thought that 5,000 visitors would be an ambitious number of visitors but it looks like we have topped 10,000.’
There is still lots to see and enjoy throughout Murwillumbah with the Palette Show at Proudfoots Loading Dock 98 being one highlight. Many famous and talented artists have hung their work with the palette they used to do the work beside it, which is amazing to see said Pat.
Everyone is welcome to bring a blanket, picnic and their own water bottle (there will be plenty of taps to refill from) to the Ray White Rural Murwillumbah Saturday Arvo Picnic. Taking place from 2pm there will be lots of food trucks and a fun closing ceremony as everyone comes together to celebrate a wonderfully successful 2018 art trail. This is a drug and alcohol free event.
‘There is still plenty of work for sale,’ said Pat.
‘The exhibitions are ever evolving as people buy works and take them away and artists put more up.’
