Art Trail proves a big draw

The 4th Wilmslow Art Trail proved to be a big draw this weekend with hundreds of visitors following the trail and visiting the participating artists.

The warm weather provided the perfect opportunity for local residents and visitors to walk around Wilmslow to take in the many and varied artworks on display, as well as enjoying all that the town has to offer.

Visitors were very positive in their feedback on the event, with comments including, "Had a brilliant afternoon following the Art Trail today. Some lovely work on display throughout the town!" and "Had a great afternoon at Wilmslow Art Trail meeting amazingly talented artists and artisans."

For the first time many artists opened their studios which provided a new and interesting element for those on the trail.

Organiser Georgie Johnson said "The chance to see where work is created gives a new dimension to buying artwork and seeing art such varied locations really adds to the enjoyment of any Art Trail. I'd like to say a big thank you to each of the artists for taking part as well as to all of the visitors who saw, enjoyed and bought art this weekend."

Every location provided something different, with artist Helen Robinson drawing quite a crowd as she set up her easel in the window of Multiyork. Whilst visitors to the exhibitions at St Bartholomew's Church were treated to a choir practice which provided a lovely backdrop to the art on display.

Georgie added "There are so many artists living and working in the area who do not always exhibit their work in the town. The Art Trail is an annual opportunity to see the creativity that is on our doorstep and to buy or commission an piece of original art. We're already looking forward to the next one!"
