Margaret River Region Open Studios
Next Occurrence: Saturday, 10th September 2022
9:00am to 5:00pm
Art lovers mark your diaries for Margaret River Region Open Studios – two incredible weeks of immersive and interactive personal art experiences, the biggest event of its kind in the southern hemisphere!
A record 168 artists will throw open the doors of their studios for Margaret River Region Open Studios and invite you in to meet, chat, be inspired and possibly purchase a piece for your collection.
From Anniebrook to Witchcliffe and Boallia to Eagle Bay, the Margaret River Region will be a sea of Open Studios signs welcoming in art lovers to the artist’s usually private world of paint, canvas, kilns, fabric, fire, timber, charcoal, chainsaws, pencils, found objects, welding tools, looms, printing presses, clay, metal and millinery.
Create your own artistic road following a trail of your favourite artists or art styles, or discover new talent.
Springtime is the perfect time to visit the Margaret River Region and experience something new, road tripping the quiet back roads to discover studios in family homes, old timber mill cottages, hobby and dairy farms, straw bale homes, a converted water tank, cottages, hay sheds, converted school bus, brewery, beach shack, industrial sheds, sea containers, shearing sheds, bush blocks, a ‘Sheila shack’ and more.
Some artists who call the Margaret River Region home have lived here all their lives and others are more recent arrivals, bringing with them the influence of their home states or countries. There’s a depth of artistic talent here that would be hard to match anywhere else in the world.
Living in the Margaret River Region remains the most significant influence on our artists work –our sweeping coast, ocean, forest, vineyards, wildlife and natural beauty.
