It’s nearing time again for Open Studios, but this year our area has been shifted to the later time-slot of 10th and 11th November. You’ll be able to visit various artists studios and other events in the Valley leading up to, and over the Open Studios weekend.
Local Steels Creek artist, Margaret McLoughlin, will once again be opening her studio (just off Steels Creek Road) and showing off her considerable artistic skills. Margaret also suggests popping into Coombe Farm beforehand, to view two works submitted in this years exhibition.
The Yarra Valley is home to many world class artists, so you’re sure to find something on the program that takes your fancy.
The program brochure has maps showing where to go and who to visit, but these should also be available at Coombe and other outlets if you need them.
Sculpture artist, Richard McLoughlin, (yes, definitely related) will have a brand new, welded and painted sculpture work set up in their studio garden too. If you’ve not visited their gardens, it’s worth a visit for that alone. You are welcome to wander around the grounds and eat your packed lunch if you’d like to too!
