“Over 50 artists will participate by opening up their studios and workshops to visitors, whilst others have their artwork on exhibition in the region’s galleries and creative spaces,” Team Leader Arts, Culture and Museums, Georgina Perri said.

“Visitors will have the opportunity to meet and talk with artists in their creative spaces, and experience a diverse range of creative methods and techniques including ceramics, woodwork, painting, glass blowing, textiles, botanical drawing and much more. The studios are spread right throughout the greater Queanbeyan-Palerang region including Queanbeyan, Bungendore, Braidwood, Bywong, Captains Flat, Fernleigh Park, Primrose Valley and surrounds.”
