The Frome Open Art Trail celebrates local artists and makers, normally taking place alongside the Frome Festival in July. Now it will be online as a Virtual Art Trail running from 4th – 12th July 2020. We felt it was important to continue the Art Trail for local artists and makers to show their work. Often artists can show more online than from a studio allowing more choice to view and buy.
Over the last few years the Frome Open Art Trail (formerly Frome Open Studios), has grown in strength and reputation attracting an increasing number of art lovers who enjoy meeting and buying directly from the artist. Even at this uncertain time, the artists would deeply appreciate you taking time to visit online, to buy via their shops or make contact. Each artist is showing their work using photos or videos, so click on the links, and enjoy looking at the range of work produced locally. There’s a wide variety of prices on a great diversity of beautiful art and crafts.
52 local Frome artists are taking part in the Virtual Art Trail with affordable art for everyone including ceramics, paintings, textiles, photography, glass, and jewellery. In Frome we have a large number of artists from student to professional artists – many are now seriously struggling financially as so many exhibitions, art projects, and community events have had to be cancelled or put on hold. We would be so thankful on behalf of the artists for any sales from cards to commissions.
The Interactive Brochure gives details of the artists, with images, contact details and links to their work. To purchase work some artists have online shops, or you’re welcome to contact them directly by phone or email.
