Twenty-seven venues. Sixty-seven artists. One trail. The 2019 South Hams Arts Forum (SHAF) Arts Trail is sure to capture the attention of art enthusiasts from all over the world as it takes place from October 12 to 27.
Considered one of the biggest art events in the South Hams district, this highly-anticipated yearly arts showcase will once again feature talented SHAF artists and their masterpieces. From paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolour and other media, to hand-turned wooden items and hand-made wooden furniture, art lovers are in for a treat as they get to view all these and so much more. Sculptures, ceramics, glass work, basketry, photography, lampshades, jewellery, even paper and textile art, are also to be expected. In the meantime, those interested to purchase directly from the makers will not be disappointed with the dazzling display of diverse original works of art on the Trail.
The Trail, situated on many different locations across the picturesque South Devon region, affords visitors the chance to visit homes of artists, some of whom will host live demonstrations and discussions of their craft. There will also be opportunities for entire families to attend workshops, see art galleries and visit exhibition halls.
This year’s Art Trail will also feature two talented students from the Kingsbridge Community College. Catch Kirsty Chambers and Madeleine Crossley on the Art Trail in the Market Hall in Kingsbridge as they showcase their work, along with that of other established artists.
