ARTS Trail 2020

Biggest Year Yet!

In November 2020, locals and visitors social-distanced themselves around the Highlands in the biggest and best ARTS Trail ever.

Excitement, visitation and sales were all UP despite the impact of COVID-19. Over 80 artists in 37 studios and 9 galleries dazzled a total of 11,852 visitors (a 77% increase on previous best) who purchased almost $317,000 worth of art (up 102%). There were 4,888 page views of the ARTSfile website with an average session duration of 3 minutes 25 seconds, and social media interactions on FaceBook was 5,200 minutes versus 5 minutes in 2018.

2020’s artistic ramble around the beautiful Southern Highlands was a huge artistic, social and financial triumph!

Our STUDIO, ARTIST and GALLERY pages will remain live until later in the year so you can revisit your experience, or see what you might have missed out on!
