The Mother’s Day Art Fair at Stokers Siding will be a wonderful event for mums and everyone.

This Mother’s Day, Art Fair at Stokers Siding invites you to an idyllic day in the country to enjoy the extraordinary talent of artists that reside in and around the Northern Rivers.

Located just outside Murwillumbah, the monthly Art Fair at Stokers Siding is a curated art exhibition presenting a diverse range of original paintings, prints, photography, pottery, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and works on paper by more than 20 local exhibiting artists.

…and morning tea

Once you’ve had a chance to check out the art, settle in for a coffee and a slice of homemade cake, or tuck into a delightfully crisp woodfired pizza from Gunter (if you know, you know). There will be fresh juices, chia pots and vegan options as well as plenty of outdoor seating. Paul Sims and his guitar will provide melodic tunes for your Art Fair adventure.

The Art Fair at Stokers Siding is on this Sunday May 8 from 10am to 3pm, and will continue throughout the year on the second Sunday of every month.

Stokers Siding Hall | 244 Stokers Road, Stokers Siding.
