LOCAL artists are inviting people to step into their world on Sunday.

Artsource Midland’s studios will open to the public so they can meet the artists and explore where they work.

The studios are located in a 100-year-old former boarding house, providing low cost working spaces for 18 professional artists.

Artist Marisa Tindall has developed her painting in the building for the past two years, using natural materials found in bushland of the Wheatbelt.

“The rawness that we see in nature is an inherent part of what we are,” she said.

“The activity of collecting forms part of the ritual in preparing my artwork.”

Tindall said her studio allowed her to work on several paintings at once.

“It is similar to the changing elements in the environment as I move from place to place,” she said.

Other artists working from the studios include Gayle Mason, Libby Gui and Mal Harry.

Artsource opens its studio at 1 Great Northern Highway on Sunday and entry is free.
