Welcome to Arts Open 2022: Meet the Makers
Visual artists from all corners of Mount Alexander Shire will throw open their studio doors for Arts Open 2022. Members of the public have a unique opportunity to meet the artists our region is renowned for, witness the spaces in which work is created, gain insights into the creative process and purchase work directly from the artists.
Held biennially, 2022 will be the sixth Arts Open.
