LOST 2015

LOST or the Leichhardt Open Studio Trail is an event held in conjunction with Art Month each year in March. For the first time we join the newest festival on the Sydney events calendar - Spectrum Now. This year it is occurring over the weekend of the 14 + 15 March, between 10am - 4pm.

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.
