Back on the trail of art
PAINTING, pottery, photography, jewellery and sculpture are all part of the Salisbury Art Trail, which returns to the city from Saturday.
The fifth event, organised by Salisbury’s visual arts network Plain Arts, will take place in front rooms, cafés, studios and business premises in the city and surrounding area until October 13.
There will also be a host of workshops for those taking part in the trail to try a new skill, develop an existing one or hear artists talking about their approaches and techniques.
Tile making, tie-dye, animation, knitting, textile sculpture and guided walks are among activities on offer.
Bright pink signs will be popping up across Salisbury and the surrounding area to guide visitors around.
More information about artists and venues is available at plainartssalisbury.co.uk.
Among those exhibiting this year is photographer Sally Edwards, who will be displaying wildlife photography from Botswana, Africa, France and the New Forest to support locally-based Hope and Homes for Children.
Her exhibition will be taking place at 95 St Mark’s Avenue every day from October 5 to 13 between 11am and 7pm.
Ten per cent of all the money raised from sales will be donated to the charity, which supports vulnerable children.
She said: “Most children in institutions are not orphans – they have families, but have been abandoned because of disabilities, disease or poverty. So I am thrilled to use my work to support these vulnerable children to have the chance to grow up in the love of a family."
