With the spectacular Galston Gorge as its backdrop, this sprawling natural bushland property is home to Melanie Jai Artists Studio. Architecturally designed buildings mixed in with rugged hardwood and currogated iron studios fuse urban and traditional elements to create an utterly inviting space. Melanie’s studio sits at the front of the property, featuring vibrant contemporary figurative paintings. Best known for her narrative pieces tackling the issue of Autism, she accesses an arsenal of materials such as paint, metal, wood, bitumen, ink, and shellac, to tell the stories in these large scale works. The Cottage, the second studio space, sits snuggly into the main hub of the property, and is opened up for use by other artists and craftspeople working in a diverse range of materials during the Arcadian Artists Trail. Come get your culture on and immerse yourself in our wildly talented artists’ community.
