Uki artists set to show true colours at collective

THE Northern Rivers is bursting with creativity as many artists come together for the integral Uki Art Collective this weekend.

With more than 10 artists already signed up for the first market, organiser Lisa Young said the monthly event would offer different artists from across the region the chance to showcase their work to the public.

"The collective isn't an art exhibition, rather a space created to showcase the creative diversity of such amazing creatives in our area,” Ms Young said.

"Everything on display will be for sale.

"All artisans will be there every month to meet and greet and talk to visitors instead of just a shop assistant, which is very important and refreshing for people wanting to purchase something unique and interesting for their home knowing how it was created and who made it.”

Ms Young said there were still some spaces available for any artist interested in being a part of this celebration of local art.
