A UNIQUE CREATIVE EXPERIENCE
5 & 6 NOVEMBER 2022
An ‘Open Studio’ is when artisans “on the Arts Trail” commit to inviting the public into their studios to experience their art or craft process by way of a demonstration, workshop or discussion about their art or craft. Visitors LOVE the real studio experience and, when we assess the applications, preference is given to authentic and interesting studios. Your studio doesn’t have to be pretty or pristine.
NEW FOR 2022 - If you don’t have a studio at home, we are planning a pop up opportunity at the Warwick Art Gallery on Sunday 6 November. This opportunity will be open to six local artists.
IT IS CRUCIAL THAT THE ARTISAN OFFERS AN EXPERIENCE – SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND MEMORABLE – SO OUR VISITORS FEEL THAT THEY HAVE SEEN SOMETHING NOT NORMALLY MADE PUBLIC. IT NEEDS TO BE MORE THAN AN ART EXHIBITION.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Artisans residing on the Southern Downs north of Dalveen. Unfortunately we cannot extend the trail beyond the boundary of the Southern Downs Regional Council. NOTE YOU MAY BE ASKED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Warwick Art Gallery will pay artists who are selected for CCART. Home based/Collectives/Artists located in a business will be paid $500 for the two days. Artists who are selected for the Pop Up Studio event on Sunday 6 November will be paid $200. Warwick Art Gallery requires payment of 10% commission on sales made over the Trail weekend.
