Burnham Art Trail at Burnham-on-Crouch
Exhibition, Sat 24 Jun - Sun 2 Jul 2017
The Burnham Art Trail is a fantastic day out. This year, there’ll be six open artist studios and gardens where you can relax and watch an art demonstration or have a cream tea.
We’ll also have Art on the Quay, an event where you can meet and chat with art trail artists and view and buy their work. There will also be the opportunity join in with our community project by contributing to our public artwork, which is themed on landscape and the environment.
Burnham-on-Crouch will be showing an exciting and diverse mix of contemporary art, ranging from painting, illustration and photography to ceramics, textiles, printmaking and sculpture.
Burnham Art Trail is in its 13th year, all artists are from Burnham and the Dengie Peninsula or have close ties to Burnham. The majority of the works on show will reflect the unique character of the Dengie, with its vast, rolling salt marsh, never-ending skies, abundant wildlife, wonderful east coast light and strong sailing traditions.
Exhibits are housed in many interesting venues, both private and public. Throughout the town, shops, businesses, community organisations and individuals support the trail by providing window space, display areas, gardens and open studios that are easily accessible to the public. Most venues are within a pleasant stroll of each other. The Burnham Art Trail offers an ideal opportunity to explore this historic, friendly town.
Burnham-on-Crouch is easy to reach by train from London Liverpool Street and Stratford. Public bus services connect the town to Maldon and Chelmsford and a regular ferry runs from the quayside to Wallasea Island. Burnham has plenty of free parking and many lovely cafés, restaurants and public houses to keep visitors refreshed.
Please come along and join us to celebrate showcasing art and creativity in our artist-organised and led trail.
