Trawden Art Trail 2017, 21st and 22nd October.

We are looking forward to Saturday and Sunday, as for once, we get to spend the whole weekend in the pub and the cafe! It’s the first annual Trawden Art Trail and Aly is Artist in Residence at the splendid Old Rock Cafe and Matt is Artist in Residence in the plush surroundings of the Trawden Arms. Both venues have been very generous in lending space for this event. Here are the salient facts:

  1. It is on Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
  2. The trail is a lovely 1.5 mile walk round Trawden taking in artist studios, an art fair and of course Aly and Matt in their venues.
  3. You will need a ‘trail guide’ to get in the other venues, which is available from the Community Centre for just £1 and is the start of the trail. The map from the guide is reproduced below.

PLEASE POP IN AND SAY HELLO. WE WILL HAVE PRINTS, CARDS AND ORIGINALS, AND MATT WILL ALSO HAVE FRAMING SAMPLES WITH HIM.

North Yorkshire Open Studios 3/4th June and 10/11th June

Artists are opening their studios and selling work to the public during NYOS17 over the first two weekends in June. A range of original artwork and unique locations to inspire you, from dales to moors to coast – including on the edge of historic Yorkshire, A.C Telfer. Her painting studio is next to the gallery and not normally open to the public. But it’s been given a tidy so please call in and admire her efforts with the duster!

You can pick up a brochure with details of all the artists taking part at 22B, or visit their website http://www.nyos.org.uk/
