This is our tenth year and we welcome you to join in our party. We have planned some special events in honour of our anniversary.
The artists you see live and work in or have strong links with Burnham and the Dengie Peninsula. The Art Trail displays a broad spectrum of creative talent, including fine art painting, sculpture, photography, jewellery, textiles, printmaking and woodturning. Most artworks are available to purchase.
The trail offers a great opportunity to explore our beautiful town and enjoy its wealth of creative talent.
Set within an enjoyable walking distance it encompasses many interesting public and private venues, including artists’ studios. Local shops, businesses, individuals and community organisations support the event by donating window space, display areas and gardens, and they work with our artists to put on a fantastic show.
We are pleased to announce the following artist demonstrations and workshops this year:
Fianne Stanford • John Green • Jean Webber • Liz Potter • Martin Hipsey • Akiko Fujikawa
Sue Spiers and other artists will be painting in the town square and on the quay with the theme of portraiture, you can also pick up a pen and draw a portrait of yourself, your friends, your family and stick it on the wall at Café 41.
Dotted around the trail will be photo booths featuring famous paintings within which you can have your photo taken.
As well as individual artist exhibitions, Burnham Museum also features Art Trail “Unframed”, which offers the opportunity to purchase artists’ cards, gifts and unframed work.
“Secret Postcards” (also at the museum) comprises original, postcard-sized artworks created and donated by all of our 2014 artists. Each artwork is for sale.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
