Throughout the Murwillumbah Art Trial (MAT19) the Murwillumbah Art Hub ‘Uninhibited’ exhibition had many interstate visitors and among them were David and Jenny Barnes from Melbourne. David was quite taken with the talent of our artists and was particularly taken with Jocelyn Smith’s piece entitled ‘Dare to Sting’. Unfortunately they only had airline hand luggage, were already overweight and were quite disappointed they couldn’t take it with them…until David had an idea.
David and Jenny are well known to and have dealings with Murwillumbah’s Ray White Office and in the spirit of generosity, purchased Jocelyn’s painting with the intention it be presented to the Ray White Office.
Jocelyn has, with great pride, presented her art piece ‘Dare to Sting’ to the Ray White staff who were suitable impressed and thrilled with their acquisition. The empty walls of the Ray White conference room are now adorned with a unique piece of art for all to appreciate.
It is worthy to note that the Murwillumbah Art Hub was previously the Ray White Offices, now unrecognisable as it once was, alive with colour, life, unique art and recycled installations.
