Daylesford Macedon Ranges Open Studios
1-2, 8-9, 15-16 November 2014 | Studios Open 10am-5pm
Welcome to DMROS 2014 and our third celebration of the Daylesford Macedon Ranges arts community.
This November thirty artists will open their studios for the public for six days. This year we are adding a third weekend to the program to offer you maximum opportunity to mix, mingle and discover their work and creative practices.
DMROS honours the contribution artists make to the community at large. They are constantly at the forefront of new concepts and ideas, new ways of thinking and new ways of responding to political, philosophical, spiritual, social, humanitarian, scientific, geological, and other global issues. You only have to read artists’ statements to understand their inspiration and the level on which many of them ponder the major issues concerning our world today and in the future. DMROS offers you a chance to discuss such things – and anything else you would like to know about their motivation and influences.
The effect of artists’ endeavours on our health and well-being, and in creating the ‘clever society’ of Former Prime Minister John Howard’s terms is hard to measure. For that reason a comprehensive research project is currently underway in Britain.
What better setting to explore the artistic mind and pass the time of day than the rural region of Daylesford Macedon Ranges? Come visit this cultural community within a day’s distance from Melbourne, enjoy the scenery, food and wine and revel in the well being wrought by a day in the country and connection with arts and culture.
We are grateful for the generosity of our artists, committee, funders, sponsors and community for making it happen.
