Fareham Art Trail 2014

Farham Art Trail

Farham Art Trail

Following on from the Hampshire Open Studios 2014 we have the first ever Fareham Art Trail happening this year.

For information about the Fareham Art Trail go to the website or read the invitation from the organiser, Beth;

Fareham Art Trail is the first ever big art event for Fareham, a small market town in Hampshire. Featuring local, amateur, professional, national and European artists including some of note (Jon Adams, Al Johnson, Sam Pierpoint, Ginny Topp, David Hamilton, Chris May, etc).  There is also work by local community groups on display; those with autism and local children from a range of schools (inc, special schools, nursery and home education). On Saturday we kicked off with our FREE Magentic art event where members of the public were free to take home original art work for nothing.  The magnets involved shrunk down artwork along with the artists details and a QR code that when scanned takes people to a page where they can find out more about the artist and links to their websites. On Bank Holiday Monday (weather permitting) we have the BIG SOUTHERN ART SWAP between 12-3 at the town’s podium.   Everyone is invited to take along all their art, craft, photography, writing, film, etc and swap it for someone else’s work.   All work will be accepted and all those who take part have to do is to write one positive thing about the piece they have taken.  People are free to swap as many times as they like, but they must take something. We hope to create a continuing dialogue about what art is and to have no pieces left by the end of the day! The Fareham Art Trail runs for a week and features: painting, film, sound installation, photography, installations, a sculpture garden, mixed media, 3D pieces, papercuts, screenprints and more! Come to Fareham this week and get absorbed in Art.

Please note due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control Krafttea Coffee is no longer one of our venues and this work can now be seen as part of the Ferneham Hall exhibition.
