2020 Margaret River Region Open Studios | Launch party photos

The Margaret River Region Open Studios event was officially launched on August 21, 2020 after the event was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Usually held in April, event organisers were able to push back the dates to now run from September 12 to 27, 2020.

More than 100 artists from Busselton to Witchcliffe will open their studios, in places like workshops, homes and sheds to the public for next month's event.

Margaret River Region Open Studios event chairman Jim Davies said there was a definite sense of excitement amongst participating artists in the lead up to the event.

"New works have been created, art workshops are being planned and there is a really positive energy," he said.

"Having more time leading up to the event hasn't allowed our artists to rest on their laurels, in fact it seems to have had the opposite effect.

"Artists have been busy creating. Some have been influenced by the impact of COVID-19, others have turned to nature or to environmental themes of re-purposing and sustainability, and others to life's simple pleasures.

"A number of artists are planning small-group workshops for children, novices, amateur artists and those with more experience.
