Welcome to the Granite Belt Art & Craft Trail

Join us at the Granite Belt’s Premier Free Art Event

The countdown's begun for the Granite Belt Art & Craft Trail Open Studio Event.

GBART, as we have fondly named it, is a dedication to all things creative and showcases the ever growing talent of artists and artisans who call the Granite Belt home.

You’ll discover a variety of local artisans at GBART as they exhibit at studios and galleries as well as taking up residence in community spaces. Inspired by the Small Halls Festival, we’ve also invited our beautiful small local community halls to join in the fun.

GBART will now be held as a COVID-sensitive event over one huge weekend: Friday 29 October to Sunday 31 October. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of culture, talent, history and artefacts in the region.
