The Burnham Art Trail runs from Saturday 22 – Sunday 30 June 2019

55 artists are taking over Burnham to create an art trail rich in variety and with a host of fun and creative activities.

This is the 2019 art trail map, created by Tracy Saunders. You can zoom in to see the locations in more detail. On a PC, just hold the control key down and roll your mouse wheel. On a tablet or mobile phone, just spread your fingers in the usual way

They will be exhibiting their work and techniques in 42 venues – many of them private homes that are partly open to the public for the duration of the Art Trail.

With work from new and established artists, there really is something to suit everyone, from atmospheric land and seascapes to contemporary printmaking, installations, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and sculpture.

In the 8 open artist studios, you can chat to artists, see demonstrations and work in progress.

Art Trail artists will be painting and sketching, demonstrating printing, papermaking, jewellery making and ceramics to make and take away. It’s a great opportunity to buy or commission artists work.
