This year’s Secret Severn Art Trail runs from Friday 28 September to Sunday 7 October, from 10am to 5pm. The fascinating trail winds up and down the Ironbridge Gorge, visiting the homes and studios of local artists. Organiser Hazel McNab explains, “Our art trail began last year because there wasn’t one here. They’re all over the country, and we wanted our own to shout about our local talents.
“Come and be inspired by ceramics, glass, illustrations, jewellery, paintings, photography, prints, textiles and more.”
The event is sponsored by Nock Deighton and covers 10 venues, with 42 artists taking part. The main exhibition will be in Footprints at Jackfield’s Tile Museum and will feature Broseley artist Maggie Humphry painting on-site. The public can use social media to vote for their favourite exhibit at a show called Inspired by Nature at the Green Wood Centre in Coalbrookdale. See secretsevern.co.uk for details.
