    Dates: There will be two Open Studio events in 2020. Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June and Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 November.

    ** We are monitoring the current COVOD-19 situation and will have an update on 7th April as to whether the June event will go ahead. Please stay in touch for updates through our Facebook page.

    Essential Selection Criteria:
    To be considered for the Open Studios Tour the artist and studio must fulfil all the following:

    The artist’s studio must be in a lakeside suburb.

    Artists must have a dedicated space where their art is created. Artists without a dedicated studio may apply with an alternate location e.g. Community Centre. Should this be the case, permission must be sought prior to application.

    A collaboration of financial Open Studios Tour members is acceptable, if the location represents a working studio, rather than an exhibition space.

    Artists selected must provide images and a biography, to be used for the Open Studios Tour website and marketing materials. This material should be a true representation of the Artists work.

    Participating studios must be approved by the committee of the Lake Macquarie Open Studios Tour Inc. All decisions of the committee are final.
