LOCAL artists are opening their homes to give people an insight into their work.

Eleven artists will open their home studios in Hamersley, North Beach, Karrinyup, Scarborough and Innaloo on February 4 and 11 as part of the Summerset Arts Festival.

Settlers Cottage Artist Studios in Churchlands will also host various artists.

Painter Julie Silvester said the event encouraged awareness of art in the community.

“It is such a great opportunity for the public to meet artists in their own studios and get an insight into how their passion for their subject matter transfers to their work,” she said.

“This is also a good way of talking to artists about their work and also being able to view and purchase fine artworks in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.”

People can visit the studios on February 4 and 11 from 10am to 4pm.
