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)…
Photographer David Norfolk will be presenting photobooks of abstract and surreal art photography along with mounted prints of selected photographs from his collection.
David is a keen member of the Royal Photographic Society (a charity dedicated to furthering the interests of photography globally) and helps to run its Western Region.
Joining us again in 2017 is another Chippenham based artist, Meryl Kelsey-Masters, who is a multi-faceted creative. She’s been professionally involved in photography, jewellery design, stage sets, props, and garden design over the years and is now enjoying concentrating on painting and jewellery making.
Hopping over to Lacock you will find a group of artist studios in a beautiful setting at New Farm on the Lacock Road…
Rebecca is not only a talented artist in her own right, but also inspires young people to be creative as part of her full-time job as teacher of art at Corsham School.
We are very pleased to have The Corsham School join us on the Trail this year. The work exhibited will be a mixture of GCSE and A-Level students’ work together with some work from staff in the Art Department.
