ART lovers are in­vited to join in the fun of the Mur­willum­bah Art Trail 2018, as or­gan­is­ers turn an old fur­ni­ture store into an ex­cit­ing art hub.

MAT18 spokesper­son Pat Miller said ren­o­va­tions were un­der way to turn Mur­willum­bah’s Hutchin­son build­ing on Wol­lumbin St into the epi­cen­tre of this year’s trail.

“The Hutchin­son build­ing was used last year and it’s a fan­tas­tic arts space sim­ply be­cause of the scope of its walls, we can put art on it,” Mr Miller said.

“This is go­ing to be the cen­tral arts hub for Mur­willum­bah.

“We’ve got an old fur­ni­ture ware­house and we’re turn­ing it into a pop-up bar and pop-up art gal­leries.

“The art bat­tle is also go­ing to hap­pen there, which is a bat­tle be­tween Cana­dian and Aus­tralian (artists) to see who is the best tech­ni­cal painter and to see whether or not either will paint them­selves into a diplo­matic cor­ner.” The 10-day art ex­trav­a­ganza kicks off this Fri­day and will show­case unique art­works at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions across Mur­willum­bah.
