Many of our Artist's and Artisan's studios are attached to their galleries and are open to the public at specific times or by appointment. Some also teach in their studios. You get a special insight for the artist and their work when you can see first hand where and under what conditions they paint or sketch. Selecting with and buying art direct from the artist in their studio/gallery is a thrill and rarity you can experience in the Hawkesbury. Check for open weekends and times on our website or call to make an appointment.
