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”.
Skipping up Corsham High Street we find ourselves at number 36 (next to Green Ginger), the venue for Elizabeth and Humphry Barnikel. Please note they will be exhibiting in their garden studio – access is via the public car park at the back of The Methuen Arms Hotel.
Elizabeth Barnikel –
Elizabeth gets her inspiration from a large range of visual sources and has begun to move through areas of simplification and abstraction. As a child
We’re delighted to welcome Bath Spa University to the 2019 Trail! Join Tim Jollands in the basement gallery at Corsham Court for A Show of Hands, an exhibition of posters and ephemera celebrating the manicule or printer’s fist – expect quirky wordplay, visual puns and decorative joy from letterpress printers across the UK.
In the adjoining Albion Press Room, you can see letterpress in action and print a keepsake on one of the hand presses.
In the run up to the 2019 Trail we will be writing a blog post on each of our artists, venue by venue. These posts will expand on the information that you will find in our Exhibitor list and in the brochure with some fascinating insights into their work.
Kicking off our artist countdown are Michael Sutherland, Lyndsay Tarren-Leister, Chloe Pinheiro and Jane Jameson. These 4 fabulous artists will be exhibiting in Corsham Town Hall in both the Chamber Room and the Methuen Room.

We want YOU to get involved!
If you’re new to the Peacock Arts Trail, we are a bienniel arts trail, established in 2013, with the aim of celebrating the arts in Corsham and the surrounding towns and villages in North-West Wiltshire.
We provide 9 days of open studios which gives members of the public the opportunity to meet the artists and see and discover their art. And it gives artists the opportunity to show and sell your work to the public and network with local artists.
