Art Trek 2017

Thank you!

We'd like to thank all visitors and artists for making Art Trek 2018 another friendly and successful event. If you were a visitor, please let us know about your experience by filling out this short survey. Feedback from everyone helps us to improve the event each year.

Art Trek sets out to help artists and the public come together in the relaxed settings of the artists' homes, studios, workshops and a variety of venues. Developing relationships between artists and visitors brings wonderful insights into the artists' ideas and their creating processes. Artists taking part in the open studios have the opportunity to create a dialogue with the visiting public and show any work in progress, sell original artwork and hold demonstrations and workshops throughout the event.



This year’s Art Trek was kindly supported by our advertisers; The Grove Inn, Kings Nympton; Quince Honey Farm, South Molton; Somerset Open Studios; The Bell Inn, Chittlehampton; The Plough, Torrington; Blue Gallery, Barnstaple; Tawstock Court, Tawstock; Frame, Barnstaple; North Devon Arts; Westward Ho! & Bideford Art Society; The Burton, Bideford; Jill Rousseau Gallery, Bideford; RHS Rosemoor and the Appledore Book Festival - many thanks to them all.

If you own a gallery, a hotel or B&B, coffee shop, restaurant or similar, you could benefit from increased business by taking an ad in the Art Trek brochure (10,000 printed and distributed this year, 15,000 planned for 2019). To give a feel for the event, the 2018 brochure can be viewed HERE
