Almost 100 local artists featuring in Murwillumbah’s art mecca event

Join the artists and makers, the crafters, musicians, poets, storytellers and all the other creative people on the Murwillumbah Art Trail over the weekend of the 29 to 30 May 2021.

Less than an hour’s drive from the Gold Coast, you enter a different world. Surrounded by five World Heritage National Parks, the countryside around Murwillumbah is a blend of rolling green hills and quietly flowing rivers, punctuated with pockets of sugar cane, banana plantations, hobby farms and small village communities.

Murwillumbah has built a name for itself as the creative cultural hub for the Tweed Valley – it is here that the Tweed’s artistic community really thrives. The town is known for its art deco architecture, glorious antiquing and thriving arts community, which every May hosts an art trail, a celebration of all things contemporary art in Northern NSW.

Studios, galleries and creative spaces will open their doors for MAT21 in the Tweed region this May.

The arts trail is your opportunity to visit artists in their studios and shared spaces, meet the makers, learn about their stories and techniques and enjoy some exceptional art, all whilst experiencing the Tweed regions natural beauty.

There are a total of 27 studios, galleries and bespoke locations on the trail and 90 artists exhibiting with the Murwillumbah CBD at the centre of the trail. Enjoy a drive through the picturesque Tweed region – from coast to river and hinterland, discovering back roads and hidden treasures in this wonderful corner of Northern NSW.

An exciting addition to the Trail is the workshops available to attend and participate in the creative process yourself. Facilitated by some of talented artists in their own studios, the workshops happen throughout the trail period.

There is also a great selection of entertainment happening in the Murwillumbah CBD with street art, live music, theatre, poetry, a mixed media exhibition and more.
