The Armadale Hills Open Studio Arts Trail returns for a sixth year with 14 amazing studios opening their doors to the public in September!
Held from 11 to 20 September 2020, this is a unique opportunity to explore the inspiring private spaces of artists, discover their processes first-hand and also explore the region's many serene natural attractions.
Local artists are eagerly awaiting for you to visit this year's Arts Trail after such a quiet spell during COVID 19. Springtime in the Hills is the perfect time to venture out to discover the extraordinary range of artists and art practices across 14 studios, including a number of first time studios nestled amongst the stunning natural beauty of the Armadale Hills.
A few artists have opted to have their studios set up at local landmarks in the area, including the Waterwheel Gallery, Bedfordale and popular lunch spot The Pink Deli, Kelmscott. There are also two Collectives Groups; Armadale Society of Artists, Armadale and the newly renovated Aboriginal Artists Collective in Seville Grove.
On the Arts Trail, you will discover a variety of unique art styles from Painting, Woodturning, Textiles, Fused Glass, Steel and Leather Handbags.
As you're making your way around the area, look out for the blue banners and Trail signage to help you find the studios. Make the most of your trip by pausing for refreshments at one of the local cafes!
