LOCAL artists are throwing open their studio doors in September to welcome art fans to their creative spaces.

Fifty artists in the Armadale hills are inviting the public to come and see how they work and explore the Open Studio Arts Trail.

The arts trail is now in its third year, and has grown in to a popular feature in the Spring Into Armadale festival calendar.

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the trail offers an array of artwork from painting to pastels, textiles, ceramics, sculpture, glass and Aboriginal art.

“People in Perth love their art and there are many very talented and professional artists in the Armadale hills region,” Mr Zelones said.

“This is a spectacular opportunity for these artists to showcase their work, gain inspiration from fellow artists in the area, build connections and strengthen their art sales.”

Last year’s event attracted over 3,700 visitors from across Perth and $52,000 worth of sales and commissions.

The Armadale Hills Open Studio Arts trail is free to attend, and will be run from 10am to 4pm on September 8 to 10, 15 to 17 and 22 to 24.
