It’s that time of year again when artists from throughout the Shire of Mundaring open the doors to their studios and allow the general public to wander through and admire their work.
Sixty-one artists at 30 studio locations will be showcased between October 23 and October 31 as part of the Mundaring Hills Open Studios.
From glass and ceramics to oil paint, water colours, textiles, wood, recycled metals and more, the unique event gives art appreciators the opportunity to step inside the lives of each of the artists and see where they work and what they have created.
For Darlington sculptor and painter Carolyn Francis, who is exhibiting in the event for the fifth year, it’s a great opportunity to showcase her work.
“I love showing people what I do because as a female metal artist, there aren’t many of us,” she said.
Carolyn grew up sailing with her family which is reflected in the stingray, jellyfish and ocean-inspired artwork that adorns her Darlington studio.
