The Peninsula Studio Trail is a not-for-profit group of artists who collectively promote their work. They aim to reflect the quality and range of fine arts and craft practiced on the Mornington Peninsula, and to make artists' work more accessible to the general public through Open Studio Weekends and exhibitions.
The group uses a diverse range of mediums including ceramics, painting (oils, watercolour, acrylic), printmaking, photography, textiles, sculpture, gold and silversmithing and glass.
Annie Dowd, Mount Martha, is one of the participating artists
18 artists are involved in the Open Studio Weekend, in locations stretching from Frankston to Rye and Balnarring. You will have the opportunity to meet member artists as they work in their studios and experience the inspiration, emotion, spirit and energy behind their work.
You will also have the opportunity to view and buy their stunning artworks.

To find out which artists you can visit, use the Plan your Trip online tool. Most are open from 10.00am to 5.00pm on both days, but note that a few studios are only open on one of the two days.
While you're in the area, make sure you drop into the Peninsula Studio Trail's exhibition, which is on at the Bakers Gallery at Red Hill Bakery, 1/3000 Frankston-Flinders Road, Balnarring, until 23rd October 2014.
