Artists are getting ready for the 2019 Trail.

‘We have had a wonderful response to the call for submissions for the Art Trail this year’ says Sarah Thomas, Chair of Ilkley Arts with nearly 60 artists being selected. ‘Particularly pleasing is we have had nearly 30% new artists selected so there will be lots of new artists and work to enjoy as well as some of the much loved artists who have exhibited before’.
This year the Trail will using a number of new venues as part of the Trail – the Manor House and the Wildman Theatre at the Ilkley Playhouse being the 2 main new venues. ‘We will still have a number of venues in artists’ homes and studios but we will also have these major venues in beautiful settings that will be a joy to come and view the art in.’
The Town Council Chamber is being made available to the Art Trail again to provide a wonderful space to showcase one piece of every artist’s work who on the Trail.
