Follow the Trail

Hubby and I walked some of the Chelmsford Arts Trail yesterday afternoon. Starting at my venue, Barda Restaurant, we wound our way around the streets to the Shiny Shed HQ and the collective exhibition at the old Barclays building in the town centre. 

The top photo shows my ethereal landscape painting 'Dream and Vision' in the collective exhibition. 

In the second photo, you can see Cherry Hall's 'Doris' standing proud in the far corner. Doris is created from mosaic and found objects. She's amazing! There is lots more work from various trail artists in the collective exhibition, but I couldn't photograph them all. 

The last four photos show some of the work by artists at the Spray Can Gallery. These are situated around the old university buildings behind the Railway Tavern on Duke Street. The fumes from the paint made me dizzy. There are various trail events and workshops going on all this week as a part of the trail and the Altogether Now festival.

  1. Excellent - although I'm a tad curious as to how those paintings are supported on what looks like a huge sheet of paper? Or is it a tarpaulin sheet?? :)

  2. LOL. They are hanging in front of the paper sheets, suspended from the ceiling on clear wires. :)

  3. Ah, yes, that makes much more sense!
