Hidden Gems – Open Artist Studios

Community Event

7 Jan 2023 to 7 Jan 2024 Monthly Event

The Hidden Gems group of artists from the Ballarat region open their studios over the first weekend of each month.

The five studios are within 10 minutes of each other – making this an enjoyable mini-arts trail. The Haddon studios of Vida Pearson/Fred Ross, Stella Clarke and Kate Wise are all close together and then it’s a short 10-minute drive to Red Echidna Studios at Smythes Creek and another five minutes to Raintree Art in Cambrian Hill.

The artists’ studios are open on the first weekend of each month which gives them a rare opportunity to connect with art lovers and show their skills in their chosen mediums and diverse range of subject matter and styles. The studios offer printmaking, artisan furniture, painting, ceramics and Aboriginal art.

This is a brilliant opportunity to explore the Ballarat region with the added bonus of some really interesting artists to chat with and some wonderful artwork to view.

Welcoming visitors on the first weekend of each month 10:00am – 4:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Please check the web page for which studios are open, as this can vary from month to month.
