dandenong ranges open studio - this weekend

It was a great pleasure to officially open the Dandenong Ranges Open Studio group exhibition for 2012.

This is the wonderful team leading the workshops for the Belgrave
Lantern Parade, coming up on the 23rd June. From left to right:

What a magnificent job they have done on these powerful owl
lanterns, stunning.
In the Jarmbi Gallery at Burrinja, the works were impressive and a great sample of the works on offer over the Open Studios weekend.

On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May, artists will throw open their studios to visitors, it's a great way to see some local art, have a chat with the artists and tour the magnificent Dandenong Ranges.

The fine team from the Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief
Service in Belgrave.

This year 20% of sales from the exhibition will be donated to the Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief Service. DRERS provide a valuable service to those disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our community and this is a great way to support them.

This years Open Studio showcases 33 studios representing over 200 artists and cements our reputation as a place of great inspiration for artists.

Don't forget to stop in to Burrinja too, to see the group exhibition, it's a great way to work out where you might like to head next.

It's a wonderful event, it's great to see it go from strength to strength.
