Open Studios: Ainsle + Gorman Arts Centre

What better way to spend a beautiful late spring day than at Gorman Arts Centre exploring the fascinating studios of our resident artists. Peek inside 13 working studios of resident artists across a range of mediums, where you can watch glass beads in the making, learn about millenary, explore the geometry of a violin, observe the mechanical processes of contemporary jewellery design, add to your visual arts collection, or be the fly on the wall at an open rehearsal. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a range of one-off and distinctive artworks direct from the makers.

Stop for a coffee or a drink with friends in our beautiful courtyards, join a treasure hunt, participate in a free workshop, play some lawn games, bring a picnic or pop into Sage restaurant for a gourmet lunch. While you’re here, why not visit Nancy Sever Gallery and Canberra Contemporary Arts Space.

Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres offer rich opportunities to create, present and enjoy art, to network and collaborate, to teach and learn, and to foster discussion.

Gorman Arts Centre, nestled in the centre of the city in a heritage listed building, is home to the national capital’s largest collective of professional artists, makers and arts companies. If it takes a village to raise an artist, this is the village.
