It’s so exciting, Ilkley is going to have it’s very first art trail this autumn and I’ve applied to be part of it. The trail will run alongside the literature festival when there is an increased number of visitors to the town. Artists open their premises for people to come and buy direct and perhaps to see the artist working. Not everyone has space to do this at home so some of the venues will be galleries / shops in the town.
The dates for your diary are: 8 – 16 October 2011. Some venues will cover most of those dates with participation swelling over both weekends as artists open up their studios, homes, garages and invite you in to see their work.
I’ll keep you posted on what’s happening.
