ARTS Trail 2022


Applications for the ARTS Trail 2022 will open on June 6 and close July 1.

We are excited to announce that after a couple of tough years the ARTS Trail is back.

Highlands artist are invited to apply to be part of the Southern Highlands ARTS Trail in 2022. As usual, this is an open-studio event with artists opening their own studios, or joining with another studio to showcase Highlands creativity. Needless to say our wonderful galleries are invited to participate to round off the cultural adventure that is the ARTS Trail.

For many years now, the Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail, held each November, has been a major feature in our cultural landscape. 

The Trail in 2020 was the biggest and best ever (despite COVID nightmares) – you may remember that the excitement, visitation and sales were all UP despite the impact of COVID-19. Sadly, by 2021 things had gone from bad to worse and the Trail had to be abandoned. However, with most of the country fully vaccinated and a true spirit of optimism pervading the Highlands we look forward to a great Arts/Cultural feast in November.
