Art Trail comes to South Northamptonshire between Saturday, 8 and Sunday, 16 October.

The creative talent of local artists will be on full display for nine days in October during the South Northamptonshire Art Trail 2016.

Now in its third year, the Art Trail is supported by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) via a £1,000 Community Grant.

This year more than 40 local artists will give people a glimpse of the creative process when they open their doors to the public or exhibit their work at various venues across the district between Saturday, 8 and Sunday, 16 October.

Cllr Karen Cooper, SNC’s portfolio holder for community engagement and wellbeing, said:

“The Council’s Community Grant funding is helping this growing annual event to make a very positive contribution to the district’s cultural life by enabling local artists to work collectively to organise and promote an event everyone can enjoy.”

During the week long trail, as well as viewing the wide range of work, people will have the opportunity to meet the artists, and in many cases watch them at work.

Painters, sculptors, jewellers, textile artists, photographers, ceramicists, glass artists, wood-turners and more will be happy to answer questions about their work as visitors explore the studios and creative spaces throughout the district.

Work on display is often for sale and the Art Trail is a chance for artists to take commissions.

Particular highlights include Roy Holding’s huge Tuscan landscapes in his Towcester Studio, and in contrast, Penny German’s still-life daily paintings in Caldecote.

At Blisworth, Ruth Lyne will be showing glass jewellery inspired by the sea alongside a variety of 2D work by members of Blisworth Art Group.

While at Silverstone, Linda John’s ethereal sculptures will be on display in Rookery Farm Studios and garden. There will be seven other artists at the studios and eight at Silverstone Methodist Chapel.

Other venues are in Brackley, Potterspury, Greatworth, Eydon, Upper Stowe, Milton Malsor and Hartwell.

For more information, or to download an Art Trail leaflet with a map of the venues, visit www.arts-sn.org.uk

Leaflets are also available from The Forum in Towcester, libraries, galleries and the ARTea Room at Wakefield Country Courtyard.
