Explore Open Studios
Welcome to the 5th edition of Margaret River Region Open Studios and our rich crucible of creativity. For two weeks of the year the focus of the region turns to art as alongside the wineries and behind the beaches, a multitude of artists open their studios ready to greet you. Its an opportunity to talk with them, learn secrets, explore new techniques, share ideas, admire art, and maybe even own a piece.
Frequent visitors will notice a few changes designed to enhance the event experience and its presentation. A big bold new format for the guide giving bigger images for the artists, clearer maps, easier to read copy plus a smart new logo.
This is our biggest ever event with 130 artists and it also marks the retirement of our founding chair Bill Castleden. A big thanks goes to Bill, he’s a true giant of Open Studios and our continued success will only be there because we stand on his shoulders.
A big thank you also goes to Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries for being platinum sponsors, the event would not have been possible without their support. Plus a big thanks to all our other sponsors, advertisers, volunteers and of course our tireless board.
So set the Sat Nav, fire up Google Maps, and head out on an exhilarating journey into art.
