Art trail showcases talent

THE work of more than 70 artists from Thornbury and the surrounding area will feature in an artistic showcase.


Shops, galleries, pubs, museums, libraries, churches and private homes are among the venues where people will be able to see works as part of the Severn Vale Art Trail.


Forming part of this year’s Thornbury Arts Festival, it’s an opportunity for people to see the work of new and more established artists from the area and talk to the artists themselves.


The trail takes visitors in and around Thornbury and nearby towns and villages, to see individual artists’ work and group exhibitions. The work on display ranges from watercolours and oil paintings, to photographs, enamel and glass work, jewellery, basket weaving, pottery and wood carving.


The trail is open from Friday May 2 to Sunday May 12 and most venues are set to open from 10am until 4pm, with the art on show for sale.


A taster of the work on the trail will be displayed at Papilio at Heritage on Thornbury High Street, from Friday April 26 to Sunday April 28.


Brochures of the trail are available at Thornbury Town Hall and other outlets and you can also see a virtual gallery and download the brochure online at the Thornbury Arts Festival website, at
