FREE EVENT - All Welcome
For many artists their studio is their second home… and for some, it is their home - take a self-guided tour behind the scenes and discover the hidden creativity of artists living and working in Melbourne's inner west.
Open Studios in the West offers a unique opportunity to explore the diverse range of artist's studios and galleries located in Melbourne's inner west. Now in its 9th year, the festival explores art behind the scenes and provides an unparalleled opportunity to visit the creative hubs of local artists, performers, collectives and designers, as well as a number of permanent gallery spaces.
Ranging from a back shed to a lounge room, gallery studios and warehouses, you will be fascinated by the sanctums from which artists find their inspiration and create.
Watch a demonstration, listen to a spot talk, purchase a work directly from the artist or attend a free workshop. Open Studios in the West will reveal the unique spaces rarely opened to the public. So take a walk through the inner west and discover.
