MEET THE ARTISTS – WENTWORTH MAKERS OPEN STUDIO/POP-UP SHOP EVENT

Wentworth Makers are opening their studios to the public. Artists will be on-site to explain and demonstrate their work and its process where they work and in pop-up displays and galleries. 

 Participating artists are all living within the Wentworth Shire and studios will be open throughout Wentworth and in nearby Dareton.  Work on show includes painting and printmaking, indigenous and textile art and 3D work in metal, stone and wood.

The Wentworth Makers group was formed for two years ago and in that time the membership has grown at an enthusiastic rate until today there are over thirty artists involved, all living and practising in the Wentworth region.

The creative bug has really bitten in Wentworth and besides the strong arts and crafts movement, many new shops with an emphasis on design and hand-made wares have opened in Darling Street.

Pop-up shops and displays will be located at the Wentworth Visitor’s Centre and the Wentworth Arcade, and maps are available to guide visitors to studios at artists homes in  Wentworth and indigenous galleries in Wentworth and Dareton.

An exciting new addition this year is the indigenous art gallery in Dareton – Barkindji Wiimpatya Murra Gallery on the Silver City Highway

Open studios are all within a short minutes drive from Darling Street and many are within walking distance of each other.

Maps will be available on the day at the visitor’s centre at 66 Darling Street, Artback Café cnr Adelaide and Darling Sts, on the Wentworth Makers Facebook page and at the Curly Tree 51 Darling St.
