It was a privilege to host the Severn Vale Art Trail exhibition over the past weekend. The Art Trail is a highlight of the Thornbury Calendar every year and I personally look forward to getting to go around different venues and see the vast array of talent from Thornbury and surrounding areas.
Usually the exhibition is hosted in the Town Hall but for a variety of reasons we played host this year. A new format was trialled with all artists asked to contribute a piece for the exhibition that was a particular size. This allowed for fantastic comparison of art and (in my personal opinion) made it easier to take in so many different pieces of art in such a vast range of styles.
The Art Trail itself starts on the 3rd May and continues until 12th May. Some of the artists join together in local locations to display their work, other artists welcome you into their homes. To find out more and to download a copy of the trail brochure click here.
One of my highlights of the exhibition was the carved, wooden trumpet (which worked!) by Alveston based George King. Another highlight was a stunningly detailed hummingbird by young artist, Kayleigh Almara.
