This year’s Art Trek will see artists throwing open their doors in a celebration of the visual arts across North Devon. The long-established and eagerly anticipated event runs from 15th September to 1st October.

There are participants taking part in villages and towns across North Devon, and the venues range from professional galleries to homes and artists’ studios. Visitors can find all the information they need in the Art Trek brochure which is out now or by visiting the Art Trek website at

The event boasts over 40 artists in a range of disciplines. Each venue is mapped out and visitors can create their own itinerary for the weekend, day, afternoon or even a spare hour after work! There is even the chance to enjoy a demonstration or take part in a workshop in many of the venues.

There are a huge number of art styles on including paintings of abstract forms, portraits and landscapes; there are prints using a variety of techniques including screen printing. Sculptors also feature in the event, many working in a variety of media.
