Congratulations on taking part in Margaret River Region Open Studios. It’s an exciting opportunity to share your work with art lovers, to welcome them into your creative space and hear how much they love what you do.
We will be sharing various resources on this page throughout the year, such as the new Artist Information pack, Instagram logo tiles and more. We’d love your suggestions if there’s anything else we can provide to make your Open Studios preparation smoother.
Artist Information Pack
Whether you’re taking part for the first time, or you’re an MRROS veteran, this comprehensive pack is sure to come in handy. Developed in 2022 by our volunteer committee members Sarah Hewer, Fi Wilkie and Kay Gibson with tips from many of our wonderful artists.
Artist Facebook Group
This is a closed facebook group for MRROS Artists and organisers. It’s a safe place to ask a question, share info and network with fellow artists. Click the button, request to join the group, and an administrator will approve your request.
Instagram Tiles and Logos
Share these Instagram tiles and logos on your social media channels to let your supporters know that you’re involved in Open Studios. Remember to tag us @margaretriverregionopenstudios each time you share ~ we’re always looking for quality content to regram.
