Step into the treasure trove of Tin Can Bay Art during this year’s Studio Trails
Gympie Region Studio Trails kicks off on 3 September! Did you catch the write-up on our participating amazing local artists in last month’s issue? Read it on our website if not – but here is a brief recap to remind you of what is on offer with this popular initiative:
As you well know, our region is bursting with talented artists, artisans, and creatives, and the annual Studio Trails event gives us mere mortals the opportunity to peek inside where the magic happens.
Running from 3 to 18 September, this year offers the opportunity to plan your own bespoke itinerary in your own time and visit the private studios, ateliers, and creative spaces of our local makers and gain an insight into their creative practices and techniques – and maybe even take home a unique artwork to take pride of place in your home.
