March 19th, 2023Arty Newstead hosts open studios art trail
Newstead is a dynamic centre for artists of all stripes and once again the little town that punches above its weight when it comes to creativity is inviting people to visit its studios and exhibition spaces over three weekends.
This year 18 artists, including Roger McKindley, pictured, are involved in the trail,
showing their work across 14 locations.
The Newstead Arts Hub will be showing ‘It’s a Small World’ sculpture prize.
The Newstead Open Studios Art Trail began in 2015 and since then thousands of people have
made their way around the ever-expanding map.
It is a great chance to see first-hand the inner workings of an artist’s studio and pick their brains
about the how, what and why of their creative process.
This year the line-up includes printmakers, jewellers, painters, potters, fibre artists, photographers and sculptors.
For an overview of individual artist’s work the artistically curious can go to www.newsteadopenstudios.org while those who visit six studios in person can enter the draw for a door prize comprised of work
donated by participating artists.
The prize is drawn April 15.
The Central Goldfields town of Newstead is 10 minutes from Castlemaine. The
trail is on March 25-26, April 1-2 and April 8-9, 11am to 5pm. Look out for the red
flags around town.
