The first of the Yarra Valley Open Studios weekends takes flight on 9 and 10 September.
Discover the hidden creative world of Yarra Valley artists starting this weekend with the Maroondah Highway Open Studios, and continuing on October 14 and 15 with the Melba Highway Open Studios and November 11 and 12 with the Warburton Highway Open Studios weekends.
Showcasing the work of 57 artists at 47 studio locations along the Maroondah, Melba and Warburton highways, Yarra Valley Open Studios 2017 is a wonderful opportunity to explore and experience the life of an artist in their own environment.
This year’s event includes three feature exhibitions.
The Major Group Exhibition at The Memo Gallery in Healesville from 30 August to 10 October will showcase artwork from all participating artists and is a great way to plan your studios road trip around the valley.
Smaller lead-up exhibitions at Coombe Yarra Valley in Coldstream from 13 to 31 October will feature works by the Melba artists, and at the Waterwheel Gallery in Warburton from 26 October to 14 November, the Warburton artists will be on show.
Yarra Valley Open Studios 2017 is a Yarra Valley Arts event supported by Yarra Ranges Council, Warburton/Yarra Junction Bendigo Community Bank and local businesses.
