WHY WE ARE UNIQUE
While there are several art trails that take place all over the country during the year, our setting in rural Sydney is unique and our dedicated committee members who are passionate about the arts have worked tirelessly over the years to create an exhibition and trail which is one of the most highly regarded and well attended in Sydney. The careful selection of the highest quality and eclectic range of art presented is a testament to the event’s survival and longevity. Research reflects that visitors flock from all over Sydney as well as from areas of the Central Coast, Blue Mountains and Hunter regions.
“I am so pleased to be part of this fantastic well established art event. It is a great showcase of rural Sydney and its local artists.” Jill Davis, jeweller
“I so value my selection to exhibit over the weekend of the Arcadian Artists Exhibition and Trail with so many talented artists competing for a place. After 25 years of growth and improvements, the trail is now one of Sydney’s most prestigious rural events.” Rae Woolnough, textile artist
“The Arcadian Artists Exhibition and Trail is a wonderful way for the public to engage directly with the artist and talk with them about their inspiration and their work. And then at the end of a great day out in the country it is special to be able to take home something unique and hand crafted.” Helen Symons, Northwood, Sydney
“The Arcadian Artists art trail is a must see event and not to be missed. I put it in my calendar every year. It is one of the highlights of the year.” Carol Rydon, Turramurra, Sydney
“It is so much more meaningful to be able to talk to the artist who has created the artwork you are buying and to find out about the creative process it involved. It brings the artwork to life and contributes to its meaning and significance when displayed in one’s home.” Tracey Grieve, Mulgoa, NSW
“Because so many of the artists are local to the area, much of their work reflect the flora and fauna of the area with colours that echo the soft sandstone hues and eucalypts. These pieces are quintessentially Australian.” Pauline Brewer, Southern Highlands, NSW
“We are aware that our trail and exhibition has become an event which is so highly regarded by Sydney’s creative fraternity that we are fortunate to have the pick of some of Sydney’s best talent. With such a diverse range of enthusiastic and talented artists using a wide variety of mediums, styles, materials and subjects, our event is as stimulating as it is unique.” Merilyn Chappel, painter.
