We are so lucky in Corsham to have such wonderful arty shops and galleries! It’s great to have so many of them join us on the Trail…
Venue #3 Coppins Jewellers
Coppins have been making jewellery in all precious metals from their workshop in Corsham for over 35 years. They specialise in unusual gemstones and classic pieces with an unusual twist; choose from their wide selection or discuss your ideas
Please join us in saying a big hello to Emelie – an Award Winning Artist creating empowering portraits to bring out your inner Super Hero – who is joining us again this year after a fantastic 2017 Trail!
Emelie Hryhoruk –
Creating her pieces using hard and soft bodied acrylic and spray paints, Emelie builds her portraits with semi-translucent layers to signify emotion and personality. With a history of depression and severe PND, Emelie strives to help others travelling the same journey by encouraging people to talk, be empowered and by supporting the MIND Charity through her work.
Venue 16 is the fantastic Springfield Community Campus where you can find 3 of our artists in the exhibition space. Springfield is a great family venue if you’re planning on hitting the Trail with the kids as you have the library, cafe and park just outside. And if you visit on the first day of the Trail – Saturday 5th – you will also have the added bonus of the Corsham Creative Market in the exhibition space and main hall which is organised by Nicola Davis…
Nicola Davis –
Nicola specialises in the bright and colorful art of silk painting. She enjoys tie-dying on silk as it is so unpredictable and the way the colours mix is fascinating.
Our Venue #9 is the newly opened Sanders Painting and Sculpture on Pickwick Road where brothers Jonathan and Michael Sanders will be exhibiting their beautiful art.
Jonathan Sanders –
Jonathan has painted since leaving art college but has also become, “fascinated with the lost wax method of casting in bronze, aware that I am carrying on a tradition predating Roman times”.
It’s 1st September already! And so today we begin our countdown to the start of the Trail on the 28th September…
Each day this month we will be focusing on a Trail Venue, and the artist(s) you can find there, with a blog post as well as facebook and twitter shout outs. Artists, look out for your turn and make sure you tag yourselves/re-tweet/email out the link to your blog post! Everyone else, please also share the love to help promote the wealth of talent we have on the our Trail!
You can find each venue on our Trail Maps & also click on the artists name to be taken to their individual listing in our Artists Directory.
Venue #1 ~ Corsham Precinct
Next to the My Loaf bakery in the centre of Corsham we find Venue #1 hosting five of our artists. This is a great place to start your Trail as not only do you get to see 5 artists work in one place but they are also next to The Toy Box where we have our Community Peacock Mosaic! Victoria & Breige will also be offering jewellery workshops for those of you who fancy a go at silversmithing.
Pss…Victoria is one of the Trail organisers, so if you need to pick up a brochure or ask a question please drop in & she’ll be happy to help.
This is a call to all artists within the trail area who are interested in sharing their studio space with other artists.
Sharing your studio/workshop, especially if you in a more rural area, could help to attract more visitors to your venue. And you’ll feel all warm and fuzzy inside for helping a fellow artist! 🙂
If you can offer artist space, or if you know of venues in your area for hire (village halls, etc) then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add to our list of possible venues
In case you’re wondering exactly where the Peacock Arts Trail is going to be, here’s a quick snapshot of a google map for you to see the area the trail will cover (this is also on our Discover The Trail page). Nearer the time we will have a more detailed map showing artists locations and venues.
