Very exciting news! The Artists of Margaret River Region is due for release on 28th October 2016. Featuring 80 artists of the Margaret River Region in this beautifully designed book, which has been published in association with Margaret River Open Studios (MRROS), M&P Publishing and local photographers Elements of Margaret River and Crib Creative, it’s a celebration of creativity.

Inspired by the Margaret River Region Open Studios, the book is intended to showcase the work of the many artists who have participated in this unique public art movement. MRROS has grown to become the biggest art event of its kind in Australia since its launch in 2014. From Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin in WA’s south-west, visitors are able to explore in an unprecedented way the art studios of over 100 established and emerging artists for up to 16 days every autumn, watching them create at the easel, drawing board or workshop.

It’s an innovative approach – and a hugely successful one at that – bringing art to the general public in a wholly new way in Australia. The photographic approach taken in the book reflects the ‘behind the scenes’ ethos of MRROS and the insightful profiles of each artist and, in part two, The Galleries, reveal fascinating details about what makes the creative process of the south west’s most important artists so integral to the land they call home.
