Artists will once again give the public a glimpse into their creative process this weekend.
This year's Southern Highlands Art Trail is the biggest trail in more than 15 years, according to organisers.
The event features 46 studios and more than 100 artists covering Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale, Burradoo, Robertson and various villages across the Highlands.
There is a diverse range of mediums on display including painting, sculpture, bookbinding, printing, woodwork, jewellery, textiles, photography, drawing, botanical art and ceramics.
The art is available to view and buy, and promotes the benefits of supporting the arts and shopping locally.
The trail is an established event and happens each year the first and second weekend in November.
The first weekend was a success, with an opening ceremony featuring Ben Quilty and more than 350 attendees.
Wingecarribee Shire Council cultural development officer Erin Adams said the trail was an opportunity to meet the artists and talk about their artwork.
"It's quite interesting when there's more than one artist in a studio. It's amazing to be able to talk to the artists about their work. That's the benefit of the art trail, it's about the story behind the artwork," she said.
"[The story] means more. It's not just a photograph. When you see a photo of kids or a wedding day, you connect."
Visitors from Sydney, Canberra and much further afield annually are expected to make the trip to get a face-to-face with the artists this weekend.
The trail is a great opportunity shop locally to pick up a present for a loved one or yourself.
Some studios will have EFTPOS, but many will only be able to accept cash payments.
The final weekend of the art trail will be held on Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10 from 10am to 5pm.
