Artists across Salisbury are offering the rare opportunity to view their work in their homes and studios.

The 2024 Salisbury Art Trail provides an opportunity for visitors to explore Salisbury and the surrounding countryside and support local artists and appreciate the positive effects the arts and culture have within the community.

The event, which is free, runs until June 9, and offers the chance to explore artists sharing their work by welcoming you into their homes and studios, offering taster sessions and enlivening galleries, shops and cafes.

Exhibitions include “Trailblazer” in Gallery four at Salisbury Library, which will run until June 29, showcasing work from all of the participating artists.

Distinctive yellow and blue bunting will highlight more than 40 venues in and around Salisbury.

There is also an interactive Google map to plan routes, and if you collect a stamp from five or more venues you will  be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win £150 to spend with one of the participating artists.

Across the venues, you can look out for businesses participating in the “adopt an artist” scheme - displaying information and a piece of work form their “adopted artist” bringing a taste of their work to the centre of the city.

Details of participating artists and venues can be found in the Art Trail brochure which can be viewed at . Physical copies can be collected from Salisbury Tourist Information Centre, Salisbury Library, local businesses and sites and across the city.
