Peacock Arts Trail 2017 – Thank You!

The Peacock Committee would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the 2017 Peacock Arts Trail! We can’t believe the 9 days are over already!

To our artists – a great big thank you for all your  hard work and enthusiasm. It takes a huge amount of effort to prepare for an exhibition like this, which we know you do whilst juggling busy lives.

To our visitors – it is wonderful to know that there are so many of you who appreciate the arts! Thank you for visiting in record numbers, and we can’t wait to see some of the results of the workshops and other activities that you were involved in. We hope you will hang on to your brochure as it makes an excellent gift buying guide to support local artists.

Here are a few of our photos from the Trail. Please feel free to share yours with us, especially if you made something fabulous on a workshop.

Mid-Trail Tea Break!

We’re halfway through the Peacock Arts Trail 2017 and it’s been a whirlwind!

The Peacock’s have been out and about on the Trail and we are absolutely blown away by the talent on display. We can’t thank our artists enough for making the Trail so fantastic, their hard work makes it such a success!

And a success it seems to be…everywhere we’ve visited we’re hearing incredibly positive things about visitor numbers and engagement. We also can’t wait to see the creative outcomes of the workshops and drop in activities that have been running through the course of the week.

What has inspired you so far? Have you joined in on a workshop? Where do you plan to visit next? Share your journey with us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

But first, time to sit down, have a cup of tea, and browse through our photos for a recap (and inspire those yet to hit the Trail to shake a tail feather)…

Venue #38 – Barn Gallery

Nestled down a short lane in the centre of Kington Langley village is the Barn Gallery where you will find two passionate and dedicated artists specialising in slip-cast porcelain, gloss paint and imaginary landscapes.

Cheryl Cork

Having recently graduated as a mature student in BA Hons Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, Cheryl is now working in slip-cast porcelain, which she enjoys for its fragile and ethereal appearance.

Venue #25 – Jane Scott

Remaining in Holt, you usually can’t miss our next artist’s venue due to the huge number of flags, banners and signage!

Jane Scott

Jane is a ceramicist who creates quirky, folksy ceramic and mixed media gifts.

Venue #21 – Claire Baker & Chris Dunn

In Gastard you will find two well-seasoned art trail artists who have been taking part in the Peacock Arts Trail since 2013! Claire, for her sins, was also a member of the committee until 2015 so if you want any tips on how to make the most of the Trail, or you need to pick a brochure – or just want a good chat – this is the place to go!

Claire Baker

Claire’s designs have a style that is all her own the ceramics she creates revisit the memories and emotions associated with vintage ceramics

Venue #11 – Virginia Graham

Not too far from Corsham town centre, at the bottom of South Street, you will find our next artist – ceramicist Virginia Graham.
