When the wildflowers begin to bloom and the Perth Hills take on the very best of the spring colours, head to the Shire of Mundaring on the last weekend of October and discover the creative talent nestled amongst the bush.
The Mundaring hills have a tradition of being home to artists at work in their studios and once a year, many open their doors to the public. This year, the vibrant and inspiring works of 32 artists will be showcased in 19 galleries and studios. Expect to see a diverse collection of artwork, including paintings, ceramics, sculptures, glassware, jewellery and textiles. This is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into an artist's ideas and their processes.
'It's a fascinating way to explore Mundaring, see some amazing art, enjoy the stunning creative environments created by artists and buy directly from the studio door.' Says Neil Elliott, from the Open Studios collective. 'Some of these studios have never been 'open' to the public before.'
Lots of the displayed artwork will be available for sale at an affordable price and you may see a few artists at work.
Why not make a weekend out of it - stay, explore and enjoy all that Mundaring Hills has to offer! Discover the studios, soak up the art and walk amongst the wildflowers. You'll also find many delightful spots to indulge in a delicious meal and a cosy place to stay the night! If you haven't been up this way for a while, spring is the perfect time to get out and explore!
Mundaring Hills Open Studios 2017 will be open from 10am to 5pm daily on the weekend of Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October 2017. Start planning your visit today by visiting www.mundaring-hills-open-studios.org.au and make sure to download the handy map!
