With over 140 artists in studios and shared spaces, and many more represented in galleries, this year promises to be our biggest and best yet.  We’re thrilled to welcome 35 new artists to the Trail, offering a fresh array of creativity alongside your long-time favourites.

Our theme this year is “sustainability, echoing the ethos of many artists who draw inspiration and materials from the environment, championing the kaupapa of recycling, reusing, or upcycling. Join us in celebrating and supporting this initiative.  

From award-winning artists to emerging talents, you'll find everything from conventional to quirky pieces in media such as oils, acrylics, watercolour, ceramics, metal, fibre, textiles, glass, wood, resin, and even beeswax from local hives. There's something to satisfy and inspire every visitor.
