Follow popular Byron artist trail

VISITORS can weave their way through a specially created arts trail in Byron Bay tomorrow.

The Byron Bay Artist Trail will take residents on a journey through 15 galleries and studios that make up the renowned artists' trail.

Following a mapped course and white flags at each participating venue, the aim of the day is to showcase the local art available in our own backyard.

Samaya Zakay, co-founder of the Artists Trail, said it was proving popular with interstate and international visitors on the hunt for something unique: “More people are looking for Australian-made products and we are here to fill that need.”

The event, dubbed Art in the Heart of the Bay Spring, will include the latest works of 40 artists.

Galleries will be open all day and into the evening, with all serving refreshments.

Activities have also been planned for after 5.30pm.

These include free life-drawing classes at Still @ the Centre Gallery; glass-blowing demonstrations at Farrell Glass Designs; and a circus showcase at the Entertainment Centre.
