A celebration of art will be taking place on Friday 22 November at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby with artwork from people with a disability on display. It’s a program put on by NDIS service provider RED inc. For some artists, it will be their first exhibition, say organisers. Starts at 6.30pm.

Michael Cusack from Byron School of Art will open the event with a few words at 6.30pm.

‘RED inc is an NDIS service provider offering day programs for people with disability. The art programme endeavours to nurture confidence and creativity and to celebrate each participant’s uniqueness,’ said Cheryl Bailey who is helping coordinate the show.

‘The majority of the artists have never painted before, but enjoy having fun and expressing emotions through their art.’

Michael Cusack from Byron School of Art will open the event with a few words at 6.30pm.

The annual RED inc art exhibition is open to the public one night only from 6 till 8pm at 22 Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby. Everyone is welcome to come and  join the artists for an evening of wine and cheese and the chance to take home a unique work of art.
