Newstead is OPEN this weekend!

A trip to Newstead and surrounds is well worth taking, to visit the talented artists in their open studios for our second weekend of open studios this Saturday and Sunday 30 and 31 March 2019, or by appointment.

The Newstead Open Studios art trail is our offering as part of the Castlemaine State Festival.

Eighteen talented artists stretching over thirteen studios open to the public. Their amazing artwork will be on display and for sale.

Come meet, chat and support these enthusiastic individuals. See them in action and be awed by their talent.

Enjoy a feast of gifted art work lovingly created:  paintings, ceramics, sculptures, photography, fibre art, mosaics, printmaking, mixed media, steel, resin and drawings. This will be an artistic banquet for all those who hunger for a relaxed and inspiring arts experience.

Your pocket guide and map to Newstead Open Studios arts trail 2019, is available throughout Newstead venues, surrounding townships and find us on Facebook, Instagram and at where you can download the pocket guide and/or map.

As well, enjoy a coffee or lunch at Dig, visit the Art Salon’s Eat My Art at the Community Centre and The End of Night at the Arts Hub gallery in our beautiful railway station – its all on the Open Studios art trail map!
