The Murwillumbah Arts Trail is shaping up to be one of the highlights of the arts calendar and will be held on the last weekend of May.
Weaving in and around Murwillumbah, the creative heart of the Tweed, and into the surrounding villages, the Murwillumbah Arts Trail showcases artists from across the region, offering the community a chance to see them at work, participate in art activities and purchase unique works directly from the artists.
This year the village of Tumbulgum will be joining the trail with an outdoor sculpture exhibition at Husk Distillery – celebrating contemporary works by sculpture artists from the region and also a collection of artists exhibiting at stunning The Belle Riverhouse right on the banks of the mighty Tweed River.
The Murwillumbah Arts Trail culminates on Saturday night with a colourful soiree at the M|Arts Precinct ‘Art After Dark’, where artists open their doors to their studios to welcome visitors and sell their wares – there will be live music and street food to celebrate as creative communities of the Tweed come together.
The Murwillumbah Arts Trail was the winner of the 2021 Tweed Australia Day Community Event of the Year award.
The Arts Trail is made possible by the generous supporter of Tweed Shire Council, The Northern Rivers Flood Relief Fund and ITV Community Fund.
The event will be held on May 28 and 29. For the full program and trail map visit www.murwillumbahartstrail.com.au.
