On Sunday 10 December, the artists inhabiting Dust Temple studios will open their doors to the public for the first ever ‘Open Studio Day’. From 10.00am to 2.00pm there will be eight artist studios to visit as well as Gather Store who stock local artisan products and plants.
Dust Temple was originally an old warehouse with great bones and layers upon layers of industrial incarnations. With an avid hand and creative minds that works overtime, owners John and Isla Wilson turned her on her head and opened it up as a space to explore the workings of creative minds. Its most recent life it has become home to some of the southern Gold Coast’s most eclectic and fascinating cultural outings, from regular life drawing sessions and slam poetry nights to hosting international artist exhibitions and the SWELL Sculpture Festival Smalls Gallery.
Dust Temple is home to Marloe Marloe (ceramics), SOFA (Shed of Fine Arts), Sacha Beverly (art and design), Foundry One (metal objects), Buttery Studios, Kippy timber skate boards and Ruby + Prankster (jewellery and leather accessories). This is a rare opportunity to meet the artists in their creative environment and gain an insight into their processes and work. Each studio will have work for sale giving you the chance to buy directly from the artists. This is an excellent opportunity to Gold Coast’s exceptional local talent.
