Golden Plains Arts Trail will take place this weekend, 2 and 3 April, presenting 50 artists from the region and connecting 28 art venues across Golden Plains Shire. Be inspired by expressions of creativity and culture; view the art exhibited or in progress; meet the artists in their studios; enjoy art demonstrations and hands-on activities!
Golden Plains Arts Trail is a community driven annual event now in its third year, presented by Golden Plains Shire Council in collaboration with the Shire’s artists. It builds artist networks as well as community links within Golden Plains Shire and beyond.
Whether you are an art lover or a novice art enthusiast, the Trail offers you a unique opportunity to explore art in a natural setting amongst the beautiful Golden Plains. If you look for opportunities to spend time with friends or family, this is a weekend adventure not to be missed!
So, grab a copy of the official Arts Trail map and take a self-guided tour of the Golden Plains Arts Trail. Roam from Bannockburn and Teesdale to Meredith and Smythesdale. Four trail routes represent the diverse character and landscape to be found across the countryside between the Great Ocean Road/Otways in the South and the Goldfields in the North. All venues will be open between 9am and 5pm both days.
Venues open 9am – 5pm in private residencies, community halls and centres, a winery and a school – a total of 28 art venues.
Official map brochures are available from visitor centres, galleries, various cafes and shops in Golden Plains Shire, Geelong Region and Ballarat and you can download a map from the Arts Trail website here.
