Hit the road on an artistic adventure

The Sunshine Coast’s biggest art event of the year, Open Studios 2024, being held across nine days from May 18 – 26, is almost here. And with the printed and online art trail guide now available, it is time to start planning your self-guided arts tour.

This year visitors are once again spoilt for choice, with 70 plus studios and galleries taking part, showcasing the diverse mix of more than 100 artists and featuring photography, glass art, ceramics, metalwork, sculpture, jewellery making, painting, printmaking, feather art, shoe making and much more.

The first weekend May 18 – 19 focuses on the coastal trails from Caloundra to Coolum and the second weekend May 24 – 25 moves the spotlight to the hinterland trails from Glasshouse across the Blackall Range and north to Yandina.

Arts Connect Inc. President Jenny Braithwaite said, “Open Studios provides art enthusiasts and collectors the rare opportunity to see behind the scenes into the creative spaces that artists work in, giving an insight into how they work, and to share their stories and passion for their work.

“This year we are also bringing the artists’ work together in a combined exhibition ‘Open Studios Meander’ at the Old Ambulance Station in Nambour from May 9 – 26 to give visitors a taste of the whole artistic adventure that is available to them.”

To find out more about the event, the artists involved, opening dates and times, workshops and where you can pick up a copy of the art trail guide head to the website,, and social media. (Image - Forest Track by Susan Haddock)
