May 2010 - Open Studios / by Nerina Lascelles

In May 2010, over 30 Artists in the area surrounding Dunmoochin open their studios to the general public.  The ‘Nillumbik Open Artists Studios” happens twice a year.

This was a wonderful opportunity to meet face to face with those who have either been following my artistic career over the years, as well as those who hadn’t yet seen my work. 

People seemed interested to come into my studio space looking through the boxes of collage papers and materials and intriguingly questioned me about my practical and creative process. 

 This was a wonderful exchange….. the whole ‘other side’ of the sometimes stark, formal exhibition spaces which show paintings at their most polished.
