A wonderfully rich and diverse array of Artistic talent will be on display this March when Newstead Artists open their studios to the public. Visitors to the area on a tour of the studios will be treated to a variety of artistic media and scope of practice ranging from ceramics to painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, to the practice of artful living, where such abundant creativity spills out of the studio and onto the land.
Newstead boasts a strong artistic legacy with many award winning Artists featured in this years tour, some opening their doors for the first time. With the beautifully restored Newstead Railway Arts Hub recently unveiled, the area is enjoying a sense of refreshing nourishment derived from a now integrated and strong artistic community.
This years Arts Open studio event will take place over two weekends, the Labor day long weekend (March 12 - 14) and the following weekend (March 19 – 20).
