LOST or the Leichhardt Open Studio Trail is an event held in conjunction with Art Month each year in March. During this time artists studios throughout the local area open their doors to the public. This is a rare opportunity to enter the personal creative realms of participating artists and take an exciting peek into many creative spaces.
CALL TO ARTISTS TO REGISTER
LOST 2015 will be our fourth run of the popular studio trail, which is growing in strength, and numbers of participating artists each year. Register to join us on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March, 2015 (10-4pm each day), in order to showcase your art in your studio to an art loving public.
Each year we find new artists willing to open their doors into normally private worlds, and help strengthen the arts community in our local area. In 2014 we had 40 spaces ready and waiting to be explored, with opportunities to join guided bicycle tours, attend free workshops, participate in a hands on community mosaic, and much more.
For those artists and craftspeople without a studio space, don't despair, be inventive. Find a cafe, or any alternative space agreeable and able to be open to the public on the LOST weekend, and showcase your art there.
LOST allows the wider public to see a wide range of creative ventures, and with such a wide array of genres, styles and materials in use, everyone will be able to find a number of artworks that speak to them personally in the way only art can. Visitors to LOST 2014 had the opportunity to view street art, video, painting, sculpture, mixed media, stencil art, illustration, silk-screen printing, mosaics, glass art, ceramics, flute making, furniture making, millenery, photography, jewellery, drawing and textile art.
Registrations CLOSE - Monday 1 December, 2014
