PUBLISHED: 11:00 02 April 2019
Artistic talents will once again be celebrated as the Brentwood Art Trail makes its comeback.
Now in its 10th year, the annual event, which will be taking place from Saturday, June 8 - Sunday, June 23, is a great way to not only explore Brentwood, Shenfield and Ingatestone, but a great way to enjoy the artwork of those from around the area.
Visitors can see a variety of work that will be displayed in participating shops, businesses and organisations throughout the borough.
As well as the trail itself, this year there will be additional events for the community to enjoy, including workshops and live activities taking place in June.
For the first time, there will also be a children’s version of the Brentwood Art Trail to encourage more families to get involved by exploring the borough and enjoying the art on show.
Applications for artists are now open via the website and close on Tuesday, April 30.
Artists can apply to display up to five pieces of work, which will be showcased at venues around Brentwood including shops, businesses as well as public organisations who have agreed to become mini art galleries during the event.
This year, the Brentwood Art Trail would like to feature a wide variety of artists working with different mediums.
It is also hoping to widen the trail by increasing their family of venues.
Any venues who would like to be part of the Brentwood Art Trail this year, or artists with questions, can contact event co-ordinator Villene Hyam via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents and visitors can follow the event online via @bwdarttrail on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The Brentwood Art Trail is supported by the Brentwood Business Partnership (BBP), a partnership between Brentwood businesses, local business organisations and Brentwood Borough Council.
The annual event will also be part of the 11th Essex Summer of Art which showcases artists from across the country from May through to October.
