15th Burnham Art Trail
Saturday 22nd June to Sunday 30th June 2019
The 2019 Trail – UP AND RUNNING
With artists and venues now matched and finalised, we are now ready to welcome visitors to this year’s fun and fabulous trail!
It’s been all go with getting new venues on board to accommodate our NBA’s – ‘new Burnham artists’. This year we have accepted submissions from a whopping 55 artists, with 17 being first timers.
The local shops and businesses have once again been keen to support our event by loaning their display space to showcase artists and creatives who live, work or have strong connections to Burnham and the Dengie Peninsular.
Many of the artists are inspired by our unique environment and sense of place, reminding us of boating traditions, regional flora and fauna and our marshy open landscapes with their wide skies.
Local artists have been generous in agreeing to open their studios to the public and share their space with like-minded artists from our creative community.
The Trail is volunteer led with participants ‘doing their bit’ to ensure that 2019 brings enjoyment and grand day out for all who visit.
This is particularly so with our ‘Art on the Quay’ days, when Art Trailers will be out there chatting with visitors, demonstrating their working processes and explaining how their ideas are realised. Visitors will have the opportunity to ‘have a go’ and tap into their own creativity, with printers and ceramicists joining painters to offer a diverse and entertaining dip into our creative worlds.
