Artists gear up for Peel Open Studios 2019

Peel Open Studios, back for its second year, is set to see 35 artists from all over the region open their workshops to the public as part of this year’s new-look Mandurah Arts Festival. 

This opportunity will let the public discover and engage with a variety of local talent from ceramicists and woodworkers to painters and glass artists from November 2 to 17.  

Peel Open Studios coordinator Elli Moody said the event is a great opportunity to take a look behind the scenes and connect with the region’s local talent.

“Mandurah and the Peel Region have a growing Arts and Culture scene, events such as Peel Open Studios showcase that creativity and will hopefully help put Mandurah on the map as a cultural destination,” She said.  

“Many local artists work away in their own studios, and this is a fantastic opportunity to let members of the public peek behind the scenes, discover their local artists and commission or buy artwork [direct]. 

“It’s also a chance for artists to form connections with other artists in their neighbourhood, which will hopefully lead to ongoing smaller open studio events throughout the year.

“Open Studios artists, this year, include potters, textile artists, woodworkers, glass artists and painters – the Peel region’s artists are a diverse and talented bunch who are all looking forward to sharing their artwork, their techniques and their space with the public.”

The event is set to be stretched across several suburbs which include Mandurah, Pinjarra, Dwellingup, and Waroona. 

The public can plan their trip, view artists and find out more at peelopenstudios.com
