Follow the studio trail across the south-west

AN open studio day on Saturday will give people a sneak peek into how south-west art is made.

The “studio trail” is the second of its kind to be organised this year by local art collective F Project.

This weekend’s open day will focus on studios and galleries in the Port Fairy region, with many of them rarely open to the public.

Highlights on the trail will include:

n Cherree Densley’s Killarney studio, where she does much of her basket weaving and fibre art, and garden, from which she sources many of her materials.

n Ben Fennessy’s tucked-away studio in Rosebrook, where he does his painting, printmaking and drawing. It’s also where his daughter Claire makes her ceramic artworks.

n Well-known Port Fairy artist Vic Irving’s painting studio.

n Risk Studio in Port Fairy, home to Jann and Peter Condon’s jewellery and photography.

n Kathryn Weatherly’s Old Market Inn Art Studio in Port Fairy, which specialises in painting on silk.

n Robert Gatt and Freya Marriott’s Eclectic Designs Glass Blowing Studio in Port Fairy.

n Port Fairy artist Wilma Preston’s painting studio.

n The first opening of Jan Grenfell’s painting studio in Port Fairy.

n Jeanette Toller-Bond’s studio in Port Fairy, where she does hand-weaving and felt work.

Other galleries and venues are also on the trail.
