The 2017 Yarra Valley Open Studios will be held over three weekends in September, October and November.
Showcasing the work of 57 artists at 47 studio locations along the Maroondah, Melba and Warburton highways, this year’s Open Studios program is a wonderful opportunity to explore and experience the life of an artist in their own environment.
Discover the varied and unique places where artists create and make their art and how their creative spaces and natural surroundings inspire and motivate them.
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.
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.
