Hidden Gems – Open Artist Studios

An opportunity to meet the makers as the Hidden Gems group of artists in the Ballarat region open their studios over the first weekend of each month.

The five studios are within 10 minutes of each other which makes it 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. Their 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.

They offer a diverse range of subject matter and styles. The studios offer printmaking, artisan furniture, painting, ceramics and Aboriginal art. A chance to explore the Ballarat region with the added bonus of some really interesting artists to chat to and some wonderful artwork to view. They look forward to welcoming visitors on the first weekend of each month 10:00am – 4:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
