The popular Greenwich Village Arts Trail, is on again. It is now in its 9th year, and this year has attracted 22 artists. 2020 has been a tough year, and despite all the challenges, the organiser has been able to put together an interesting trail for art lovers to enjoy.
What is the Greenwich Village Arts Trail?
Greenwich artists will open their studio doors to the public. A few years ago the Sydney Morning Herald reported that Greenwich was part of a creative cluster (and we don’t think they are wrong).
You will meet the artists! You will see the inner workings of an artist’s studio.
Many of the artists on the Greenwich Village Arts Trail have won multiple awards and have been hung and shown in prestigious art events.
There will be oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings, sculptures, jewellery, pottery, photography on display and for sale on the Greenwich Village Arts Trail.

Visitors can enjoy wonderful bush and waterfront walk as they wander from studio to studio, and choose from four cafes for meals and coffee. Studios are open on the weekend each day, from 10 am to 4 pm. Train, ferry and bus stops are all within a short distance of the trail and maps are available at the local shops or on the website.
Below is just a sample of the work that you will see.
Amanda Harrison is the initiator of the Greenwich Village Arts Trail. Amanda has always been immersed in the creative arts, whether painting, sculpture, photography, film-making or writing. She first studied sculpture in her final years of high school in Sydney before completing a bachelor of arts in film and scriptwriting at university. After travelling for many years, she settled in London. She reinvigorated her passion for sculpture at the Kensington & Chelsea College, where she learnt traditional sculpting techniques, including armature building, mould-making, casting and carving.
Back in Sydney, and after studying graphic design and running a small graphic design business, Amanda then started to explore ceramics, learning about hand-building and glazes at TAFE, art colleges and private workshops. She was thrilled to successfully combine her love of sculpture and clay and now creates wonderful contemporary artworks in clay and bronze from her art studio in Greenwich Sydney.
Dana Dion’s art with her contemporary landscapes will be on display. You can read about Dana here. Dana has been involved in promoting the Greenwich Artist Trail from the beginning.
