Local artists are invited to participate in the 2020 Mahurangi Artist’s Studio Trail (MAST), giving them a new opportunity to showcase their work.
The 2020 trail hopes to build on the success of last year’s inaugural event, where artists and craftspeople opened their studios to visitors over two weekends in May.
Participating artists have the chance to demonstrate their craft, sell their works and perhaps inspire visitors to create works of art themselves.
Last year, artists working with paint, glass, fabrics, photography, wood and jewellery were featured.
Organiser Alysn Midgelow-Marsden says artists should not be shy about putting themselves forward for this year’s event.
“Don’t be stopped by wondering what people will say – everyone in the network and on the trail dates are friendly and enthusiastic,” she says.
“You will find inspiration and friendships, connections and more through being involved.”
This year the trail will run on May 9 and 10, and May 16 and 17. There are also spaces to share for artists without a studio of their own.
Participating artists may also like to consider joining the Mahurangi Artist Network, which hosts a website giving artists a profile page. To sign up for the trail, email email@example.com or phone Alysn on 022 318 6750.
