Art lovers get ready, a new open studio event will open its doors on the June long weekend.
The Pop-Up Project's first collaborative studio event will feature 13 studios, 18 creatives and two cafes displaying art work.
The founder of EA Experience, Erin Adams, encourages residents to pick up their free map and start planning for this year's Pop-Up Project's first collaborative open studio event.
Mrs Adams said this year's Pop-Up presented a unique and exciting opportunity for artists, residents, and visitors to experience the rich culture of the Southern Highlands.
"The Pop-Up Project will give the public a rare opportunity to meet the makers, to see their work in the environment within which it was created, and to buy direct from the studio door," she said.
"This year have 13 studios with 18 artists and creatives, this includes eight new artists joining us for the first time. As a bonus, we have two local cafes in Mittagong displaying Pop-Up Artists' work.
"This project would not be successful without support from local businesses. A special thank you to our Mittagong locals Brad Wolfe from Lil' Piggy and Leanne Ferreira from Glass Café who are not only sponsors of The Pop-Up Project, they are also spaces that will have our Artist's work available to see and purchase.
"The perfect places to stop for a bit of respite, great food, coffee, and some local artwork!
"With so much to see and experience the key is to grab this year's map nice and early and plan your trip."
The Pop-Up Project Collaboration will be held over the June long weekend, June 11-13 from 10 am to 4 pm.
"The Southern Highlands has long been a place favoured by artists with the area providing the perfect conditions for inspiration and creativity," Erin added.
"And the Pop-Up Project is a fabulous opportunity to see beyond their studio doors and witness the creative processes that go into their beautiful works of art."
Mediums on display will include both traditional and contemporary paintings, etching, ceramics, woodworks, textiles, sculpture, printmaking, and jewellery.
"All studios will be open free to the public but be prepared to be tempted and make some special purchases along the way."
