Mudgee Art Galleries, Exhibitions & Artist Studios
Mudgee is foremost considered to be a premier region for wine, vineyards and all things gourmand. The drive from Sydney makes Mudgee accessible to the urban Sydney-sider and with over 40 cellar doors pitched against the landscape of the Australian bush Mudgee is a firm favourite for wine tours.
Yet Mudgee is more than a drink and leisurely lunches in charming vineyards. Mudgee should be an art lovers destination. For collectors of art, visitors who enjoy browsing galleries and exhibitions where up and coming artists showcase their creations Mudgee will definitely be on your must visit list. The vibrant art community has a natural home in the picturesque quintessential heritage town of Mudgee. There is space, literally to expand studios, you are not faced with exorbitant city rents and, crucially you have potential customers flocking to the area to relax, revive and shop in local stores.
As with all art it is a testament to the dedication of the artist as commercially it is often a tenuous business proposition with opening and closing of galleries on a regular basis. Use as a reference point. The Mudgee local business association’s excellent catalogue of events, shows and exhibitions to scroll through to check who is open and who is not.
