Mudgee's Rosby Wines have today announced their highly anticipated 2020 artistic program.
The 10 art workshops are popular with both art aficionados and amateurs alike, with each of the events being sold-out successes year on year. They are run annually alongside the lead up to milestone annual event, Sculptures in the Garden, which is this year celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The artistic program, a draw-card for visitors to Mudgee and locals from the region, offers something to suit all interests. Spanning disciplines including abstract drawing and painting, sculpting, printmaking, welding and more traditional painting techniques such as watercolour.
Rosby art workshop director, Kay Norton-Knight, is excited about the line-up of workshops on offer and the quality of each of their tutors, with the new program boasting "an impressive line-up of courses that are all artist-led by highly accomplished artists and tutors".
The program sees a mix of old favourites and fresh new faces and pays homage to the rise in experiential and immersive travel.
Highlights of the art workshop program include; Printmaking with Seraphina Martin; Watercolour with David Newman-White; Woodfire Cooking with Pip Sumbak; Expressive Landscapes with Jody Graham; Welding with Mudgee local Maurice Berry; and Landscape Expressionism with Peter Griffen. The program will also see the addition of two new workshops; Limestone Carving led by Damien Lucas; and Travel Sketching with David Newman-White.
In addition to the workshop program, Rosby will once again host Sculptures in the Garden, an iconic two-day sculpture exhibition to be held on the weekend of October 10-11. With phenomenal year-on-year growth, this not-for-profit event is now in its 10th year and is Regional NSW's largest exhibition of its kind, drawing established and emerging artists from NSW and beyond.
As the co-founder and curator of the event, Norton-Knight promises an event that will be bigger and better than ever, with "something for everyone". She sees both this event and the workshops as "a great way to support and encourage the local and regional arts community as well as bolstering visitation to the Mudgee region during what has been a difficult period for everyone".
Rosby's 2020 art program has been curated for those seeking a more holistic and immersive approach to art with many spots filled each year by returning guests who are devotees of the workshops.
"Whether you're a proficient artist seeking an art retreat to inspire you and bolster your skillset, or a group of travellers looking to relax and try your hand at something new, the workshops offer an unparalleled experience at Mudgee's premier art destination", Norton-Knight added.
