THE 2020 FERNWOOD ART STROLL
The Artstroll is currently scheduled to be on June 6-7. We continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 on our community and sincerely hope to proceed with our Show and Sale. We will make adjustments to the date and event if deemed appropriate, as we get closer to the time for the Artstroll. We hope that friends and families in our community are impacted as little as possible during these trying times.
Fernwood makers and artists will be opening their studios to exhibit and sell their art. Visitors will enjoy this opportunity to see artwork in artists’ gardens, studios and workshops, making the event an enjoyable multi-faceted experience.
This year’s stroll will feature painters, sculptors, photographers, calligraphers, illustrators, carvers of wood and stone and makers of furniture and baskets. The Pandora Arts Collective, at 1923 Fernwood, will host an interactive site for children and families. There will be something unique and handmade for everyone.
This event is an opportunity to meet and support local artists. Please invite your friends, family and colleagues to join in. While touring the neighbourhood you can also enjoy the hospitality of the local businesses in the Fernwood square and Haultain corners: cafes, pubs and bistros, and the many unique shops.
The event carries on rain or shine. This is a chance for Victorians to meet local artists and designers. It is also an opportunity to walk or cycle around one of Victoria’s wonderful heritage neighbourhoods when the gardens and streets are at their best.
