We look forward to celebrating our 10th Artists Open Studio tour in 2017 and showcasing the creative talents of our member artists in the next Open Studio Tour, 4 & 5 and 11 & 12 March 2017. Amongst our members you will find a diverse range of media including drawing, fine woodwork, harakeke weaving, hand forged knives, jewellery, lampworked glasswork, mixed media, mosaics,painting, photography, pottery and prints. Two significant local emerging and amateur art groups are also affiliated to the Art Escape in 2017 and many of our members are represented by the local galleries.
