The Byron Bay Artists Trail just keeps growing and growing.

Three new galleries have now joined the trail – Flying Goolie, Camphoria Gallery and Byron Art Supplies Gallery.

Spokesperson Samaya Zakay said the artists trail had been well-received by locals and tourists.

“It is taking on a life of its own. The public are responding to the many flyers around town and the banners we have put up to advertise it,” she said.

“It is so encouraging that locals and tourists are supporting the incredibly talented artists that live in the Byron Shire and who have courageously followed their dreams, are living from their passion and have opened studios and galleries.

“Visitors have been stunned by the range of work that is available.”

Mark, a fashion designer from Myee Carlyle Collections, said that at last count there were 121 artists working from the Byron Bay Arts and Industry Estate.

“The more galleries there are in the area, the better for all of us,” he said.

The next major event on the artists trail will be held on Saturday (July 11) from 3pm to 8pm.

Fifteen galleries will extend their opening hours and everyone is invited to enjoy music, new exhibits and drinks.
