KANGAROO VALLEY ART TRAIL
As part of Visual Arts in the Valley 2020, we are introducing an Art Trail of some of the premier studio-galleries in Kangaroo Valley.
Kangaroo Valley has long been a vibrant music and arts community, with many established artists living and working in the Valley, as showcased in the 2012 book, Art & Soul.
The selected Art Trail studio-galleries all are within a five-minute drive from the centre of the Village. All will exhibit work of the artist owner together with works by other guest artists. The artists will be present, have their tools on show and have a range of work for sale. In addition, some will be showing ceramics and other creative works.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase direct from the studio door, to talk with artists and see their work where it is made, to promote local artists (of which there are many) and to enjoy this visual arts long-weekend exploring parts of beautiful Kangaroo Valley you might not happen upon otherwise.
A map with addresses will be available at the main exhibition site at the Kangaroo Valley Hall. Please join us for the October long-weekend in Australia’s most beautiful valley.
