Nillumbik is 30 kilometres northeast of Melbourne, and it is considered to be one of the best kept secrets of our city, which can explain why many had not heard of the Nillumbick Artists’ Open Studio event. The magnificent local natural beauty has attracted and nurtured creativity in the artists who have lived in this area for decades.
Open studios are wonderful to experience. It allows for visitors to tour the artists’ environment, meet the creative individuals who open their homes and studios and gain an insight into an their working practice, as well as familiarise themselves with the artists’ work. May 1 & 2, 31 artists participate (24 studios) and showcase several disciplines including sculpture, drawing, jewellery, painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics and textiles.
At Dunmoochin, I opened my doors of 'Clif's New Studio' to welcome over 150 visitors over two days.
