MOST Artist Wendy Jagger

About Us

Discover. Explore. Admire.

MOST Mansfield is a FREE annual event held on the Melbourne Cup weekend which celebrates community, creativity, and our beautiful High Country. Visitors can explore Mansfield Shire on a self-guided tour, discovering the artists of our region.


Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd November 2024, from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm each day.

Our Arts Trail is an opportunity for the public to gain an insight into the workings of a studio, see practical demonstrations, view, and purchase artworks directly from the studio door and maker.


There are a wide variety of art mediums and practices represented, such as painting, drawing, ceramics, mosaic, recycled art, photography, fluid art, textiles, digital art, sculpture, steel art, and print making.

This concept was originally the idea of well-known local artist, Wendy Jagger, who has been opening her own studio since 2010 on the Melbourne Cup Weekend. Wendy says that after experiencing visitors’ interest in her work during her open studios, and having been involved in the Dandenong Ranges open studios in the past, she really wanted to gather a network of artists together to create an exciting event in her adopted home town of Mansfield. And so MOST came into being.

2024 will be the sixth edition of MOST. It has evolved from 4 artists in 2019 to over 40 artists in 2023. 

We are continuing to grow and welcome you to join us on the journey...
