Green Door Art Trail 2018

Green Door Art Trail 2018


2018 brings our 13th Green Door Art Trail – our flagship event which has gone from strength to strength over the years, extending from our original base in Kendal across South Lakeland and North Lancashire.

This year 63 artists are taking part in 26 venues. Some are opening up their own studio while others are sharing a venue. Some of our members have invited friends to join them in their studios while our larger venues are offering refreshments to visitors as they make their way around the Trail. As you read through the catalogue, you’ll be able to plan where to stop off for cake, and see our artists’ recommendations for cafes, pubs and good views close to their venue.

The Trail is a fantastic opportunity to see the depth and breadth of our members’ work including ceramics, drawing, glass, mixed media, painting. photography, printmaking, textiles and wood. There are smaller items too, including jewellery and greetings cards. We’re excited about the range and quality of work on show and we hope you will be too. This is a great opportunity to meet artists, talk to them about how they create their work (perhaps even see them in action) and, of course, to purchase their work.

All of our Trail venues are open on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September. This year a good number are also opening on Friday 28 September, especially in the evening, so you can get a head start on your Trail visiting. Look out for timings in the catalogue as you plan your route.

The Trail may be a highlight of the Green Door year but it’s just part of a busy calendar. As I write, we have a group exhibition at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and we’ll be back in Staveley for another Affordable Art weekend at the end of November. All of our events are advertised on our website, Facebook and Twitter, or you can sign up to our newsletter for monthly updates (you can do this via our website or Facebook page). The newsletter also highlights what our individual members – a very active group of artists – are doing throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you over the Trail weekend.

Please see the website for the full list of Artists and locations.
