Plans are in full swing for the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council 2017 Arts Trail and Open Studio Event.

Now in its 11th year, the highly anticipated regional arts event will see more than 45 artists participating in open studios, galleries and collective exhibitions over the weekend of 21-22 October.

Visitors will have the opportunity to visit artists in their creative spaces in Queanbeyan, Bungendore, Braidwood, Bywong, Captains Flat, Carwoola, Wamboin and surrounds.

Council’s Cultural Development Officer, Georgina Perri said this year’s Art Trail would be the biggest yet.

“This year the event will grow from one to two days to allow visitors to discover the many talented people scattered through our now much larger region,” Ms Perri said.

“We encourage visitors to create their own trail visiting the artists that interest them, while exploring the region and enjoying a coffee and a meal while seeing the sights.

“We are very interested to hear from cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and places of interest that would like to be linked with the Arts Trail event promotion. If you are a business who can offer something to our art loving visitors, we would love to hear from you.”
