and District Museum,
Pound Cottage Gallery, TomatoJack
Arts, The Hub Celebration Fairs and Thornbury Town Council have
come together under the umbrella of Thornbury Arts Festival to take
part in the Severn Vale Art Trail. The trail presents a wealth of talent
including paintings in oil, watercolour and pastel, ceramics and sculpture,
prints and drawings, photography, jewellery, textiles, stained glass
and woodturning. From May 2nd to May 11th the
public are invited to
visit the artists in their own studios, or shared exhibition space,
to talk about and appreciate the works on display and hopefully to make
one or two purchases of work that catches the eye. A pdf facsmile of
the official trail guide can be downloaded here or a glossy printed
version is available at Thornbury Town Hall or Thornbury Library.
Visiting procedures for members of the public
The opening times of each exhibition is given by clicking on the artists names above, members of the public are very welcome to visit at these times. Plan your route in advance and be sure to visit individual artists in their own surroundings as well as those in shared venues. Look for the red Art Trail signs as you near your destination and remember to check official notices giving parking restrictions and time limits. Please remember that you may be visiting an artist at home, so please be very careful about leaving footmarks. You should not expect to be able to smoke, or use a phone or lavatory, or wander wherever you please. For your own safety, you are also obliged to follow all the rules and instructions that your host may have put in place.
Please note that members of the public visit the Art Trail at their own risk. The organisers cannot be held liable for any loss, damage or injury sustained by any member of the public visiting an Art Trail venue.
Whilst every care has been taken in compiling this guide, Severn Vale Art Trail cannot be held responsible for any errors, variations or omissions.
