Bonsall Arts Trail is a new opportunity for Derbyshire based artists to show and sell their work as part of a curated trail.

Bonsall Arts Trail, April 4th-5th 2020 is a curated arts trail that will show artists work in various media (jewellery, ceramics, textiles, 2D and 3D art). The trail is located in the beautiful Derbyshire village of Bonsall, with exhibitors work spread throughout in residents homes and the public spaces available. The curators will allocate space depending upon the most apporpriate venue for the media being shown.

The Trail's objective is to support Derbyshire artists by providing an opportunity to publicise, sell and exhibit their work in an affordably priced event. Application costs just £10, which will be refunded if unsuccessful. A further fee to exhibit will be charged at £40 for accepted artists, but we do not request any commission on sales.

There is scope in the village for artists with reduced mobility to have full access and we hope to support community artists' organisations as fully as we can, particularly if they comprise under represented groups.
