NILLUMBIK ARTISTS OPEN STUDIOS
19th & 20th | 26 & 27th November 2016
Welcome to a brand new year of the Nillumbik Artists Open Studios Program.
We are delighted to be introducing nine new artists to the program, each weaving a unique layer into the rich and diverse tapestry of practices and creative spaces that makes this program so special.
This year we continue to support young and emerging artists whilst honouring those whom will be celebrating an official 30 years of friendship come 2017. Collectively our 33 artists have exhibited across the globe, from Europe, US and Asia as well as nationally across Australia yet it is the hills of the Nillumbik shire that is home for the creative soul.
The 2016/2017 program will see the launch of a brand new website for Nillumbik Artists Open Studios that we encourage you to explore and map your very own artistic trail. We are taking you on a journey to pockets of the beautiful Nillumbik Shire that have yet been traversed by this program such as Plenty and Nutfield, so pick up a coffee and engage in an adventure!
We hope you make new relationships and connections with the people and places that you encounter throughout your journey of the Nillumbik Artists Open Studios. Elanna Sanderson, Coordinator
MEET THE ARTISTS
One of the beauties of this collective program is the diversity of practices and personalities that are all tied together by a common thread, the love of the landscape. Painters, illustrators, ceramicists and printmakers alike culminate to make a rich tapestry of multi-disciplinaey artworks that can be discovered at your own pace, studio by studio.
September Creative Feature

As the Nillumbik Artists Open Studios weekends return this November we sat down with the lovely couple, Simon Cross and Stephanie Davies and got to know them and their stories a little better.
Simon and Stephanie have joined the program for the first time this season, and are amongst 31 other artists who will be opening up their creative spaces on the 19th & 20th and 26th & 27th November.
