16th Burnham Art Trail
Saturday 20th June to Sunday 28th June 2020

At the Museum

A Taste of the Trail

As well our featured artists, the Mu­seum will host a ‘Taster Wall’. To give an overview of the whole Trail all of our artists will be displaying one piece to ‘whet your appetite’ for more of their work.We also have our regular favourites:

Art Trail ‘Unframed’

Works on paper, including limited edition prints, original watercolours and photographs mounted but unframed, provide an affordable way to take home a special memory of your visit to our event.

Secret Postcards

Artists submit, postcard-sized original artworks which are displayed throughout the week. For the opportunity to own a little piece of local talent, cards are auctioned through sealed bids.  It’s always a lovely surprise to win a little original artwork. 100% of all money raised goes to help with funding next year’s event.

Art on the Quay

Sunday 23 & Saturday 29 June 11am – 5pm

Meet Trail artists on Burnham Quay:

  • learn about their working processes and inspiration 
  • buy directly or commission something special
  • try your hand doing arty stuff
  • chat with creatives and soak in the atmosphere

This year we have 17 artists and crafts people who will be working on the Quay over the 2 days.   

They will be bringing their work out into the community to show and share their different ways to create all sorts of art, including ceramics, jewellery, papermaking, watercolours and wood carving, to name but a few!
