Open Studios - October
Saturday 31st October & Sunday 1st November
10.00 am to 4.00 pm
Spring is in the air!! So why not visit for the weekend and follow our art trail. The Open Studio artists have had a small but steady stream of visitors since introducing OS as a monthly event in July. This is a new concept as for many years it has been an annual Springtime event and will only grow as we continue to market it.
Eight artists will be hosting Open Studios across the Blackall Range this month: Kaye Leach, Heather Gall, Jane Nicol, Wendy Edmond, Barb Willcocks, Michele DeVeze (Sat and part Sunday only), Nita Lester, Dorothy Peall. Our artists love to chat, answer questions and demonstrate their techniques. Artworks are for sale too - perfect for early Christmas shopping!!
