GOLDEN Plains Shire Council is proud to present its 10th Golden Plains Arts Trail with the north of the shire showcasing its artists last weekend and the South Trail to take part on 24 and 25 March.
Every year in March, artists and makers from across Golden Plains Shire open their homes, studios and hearts for a very special weekend of inspiration.
A dynamic mix of mediums, the trail is an exciting collaboration between artists, Council, community and local businesses.
Free for visitors, the event has been running since 2008 and is now a key date on the region’s arts and culture calendar.
Come and explore the amazing Shire and its creative communities.
Discover artists at work, a range of group and individual shows and venues as diverse as sheds, living rooms, studios and wineries.
Proudly sponsored by Clyde Park Vineyard and Bistro, the Arts Trail is spread across two weekends this year, giving visitors more time to ‘Taste, See, Explore’ than ever before.
The North Trail proved very popular with an array of craft, design, photography, sculpture, and contemporary and traditional artwork (to peruse or buy), with live music, delicious food and family entertainment adding to the fun.
Local community groups are getting more involved than ever before; the Dereel Hall and Community Centre held a mini-festival on both days featuring live music, kids’ activities, sausage sizzle, coffee and 11 local artists.
Linton, Scarsdale and Smythesdale also had a number of studios open.
Next weekend is gearing up to be just as popular in the south of the Golden Plains Shirewith 13 venues in Bannockburn, Steiglitz, Meredith, Wingeel and Teesdale which will showcase the work of more than 50 artists.
