The Murwillumbah Art Trail has had two successful multi-sited exhibitions in 2015 and 2016 and is heading for its third year in 2017. It is an exhibition of contemporary art that showcases over 60 artists of the Tweed Valley and surrounds. Over a 6 day period, the town and shops become the gallery and visitors are invited to follow the exhibition trail. It includes established galleries, artists’ studios, pop up galleries and public art.
This year's theme of Past, Present, Future invites artists to respond to the theme in relation to the region.
