Fourteen artists studios, exhibition spaces and arts venues will throw open their doors as part of the popular Golden Plains Art Trail this weekend.

On March 17 and 18, 14 venues in the northern half of the Golden Plains Shire, from Smythes Creek to Dereel, will open for art lovers to see where the creativity happens. And the following weekend, on March 24 and 25, a further 13 studios and venues in the southern half of the shire, from Meredith to Hesse, will take their turn.

In 2018 the Arts Trail celebrates its 10th anniversary, showcasing a mix of artistic mediums, styles and workshops.

At Red Echidna Studio in Smythes Creek, Barry Wemyss’ artistic tableware will be on display alongside the paint and ink printmaking of Susan Clarke. Dereel Hall and Community Centre will be an arts trail hub with at least 11 artists from the surrounding area showcasing their creative talents inside its walls.
