The Open Studios (MRROS) project enables artists to meet with and explain their diverse creative processes to an audience of art interested public.

In April this year 108 artists in the Margaret River Region hosted approximately 25,000 visitors to their private creative spaces; visitors who may never before have had the opportunity to immerse themselves in a meaningful engagement with an artist. The MRROS ethos is to expand the reach of artists into the community and to develop a new art appreciative public who may choose to become art buyers. Many of these visitors may previously have been hesitant to enter a public or commercial art gallery.

As the event expands, the Open Studios event is providing a rich networking experience for regional artists, local commercial galleries, the tourism industry, accommodation providers and local government for the benefit of the community at large.

Donating to MRROS through the Australian Cultural Fund will enable MRROS to move from a rather fragile dependence on overworked volunteers to employ some part time staff and help put the event on a surer foundation.

Margaret River Region Open Studios is the biggest art event of its kind in Australia, showcasing the diverse and vibrant visual arts scene throughout the Margaret River region. It offers art lovers the rare opportunity to talk with artists, learn their secrets, explore new art techniques, share ideas, discover artists’ inspiration and admire art.

Stretching from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, visitors can simultaneously experience the beautiful South West region of WA whilst exploring art studios of more than 100 established and emerging artists and artisans working in diverse mediums.

There is huge scope to discover, enjoy and purchase original art with the opportunity to get up close and personal with painters, sculptors, illustrators, jewellers, printmakers, glassblowers, ceramicists, photographers and furniture makers.

Margaret River Region Open Studios is a FREE 16 day annual event. Satisfy your artistic curiosity, celebrate originality and experience the vibrant visual arts scene of the region. For more information visit mrropenstudios.com.au, email art@mrros.com.au or follow the event on Facebook (mrropenstudios) or Instagram (@margaretriverregionopenstudios).
