Welcome to Open Studios Sunshine Coast

Join us for a dynamic, week-long event to meet talented Sunshine Coast artists in their own creative space and environment. Art enthusiasts and collectors can enjoy a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes, meet and directly support local makers.

The curated art trail embraces the region from Caloundra to Coolum along the coastline aa well as taking in the Hinterland through popular tourist destinations like Maleny and Montville. You can take a self-guided tour to visit local artists, buy art, join in workshops and gain new appreciation for the region’s rich and diverse art scene.

Arts represented this year include original ceramics, drawing, glass, mixed media, painting, photography, print, sculpture, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery, installation, printmaking and more. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience quality local artwork and purchase art straight from the artist themselves.
