The Eighth Annual South Northants Art Trail Will Take Place from the 3rd to 11th October 2020 Inclusive

Thank-you to everyone who visited, chatted with artists, bought artwork and made the Seventh Trail

Running in October, the Art Trail is the only organised visual arts festival in Northants, with (in 2019)
63 artists and craft makers exhibiting in 21 venues in the south of the county.

The Art Trail offers art lovers the chance to meet artists working with oils, pastels, acrylics and watercolours, glass and wood, silver and polymer clay, mixed media and textiles, coiled and wheel-thrown ceramics, photography, calligraphy, wearable art and more!
