The Open Studios ethos is one of inclusiveness. Professional, established, emerging and hobbyist artists or affiliated groups working in any medium are invited to open their art studios, workshops and homes to the public over the event period each autumn.
Venues can also extend to wineries, cafes and community premises as long as you can set up a mobile workshop and BE ONSITE FOR A MINIMUM OF 80% OF THE EVENT, as well as offer an interpretive experience based on your art practice. Please note that ‘commercial venues’ will need to become a sponsor of the event, starting from $2,000. Please contact us for more details.
YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IF YOU ARE:
A practicing visual artist or artisan permanently residing or working within the Open Studios event region, from Busselton to Augusta.

All participants must be a current member of Margaret River Region Open Studios (annual membership 1st November - 31st October).
