Ceredigion Art Trail is ten days in August when around 200 artists show their work in some 70 venues including artists own studios. Have a look round, talk to the artists and find out more about their work – all in the beautiful countryside of West Wales.
Calling all Artists and Makers – 2015 Membership now open! Deadline 31st March
Ceredigion Art Trail Open Studios August 22nd – 31st 2015
The Trail membership application form (including fees) is now online at: http://ceredigionarttrail.org.uk/for-artists/artist-registration-2015
Trail Guide entry format examples are at: http://ceredigionarttrail.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Ceredigion-Art-Trail-2015-printed-guide.pdf
This year the Art Trail Open Studios event runs for ten days from Aug 22nd – 31st.
Artists may join as a Solo member, opening their own studio or as a member of a Group sharing an exhibition venue. We will try to match members not yet in a group with other suitable artists or a Group venue.
In 2015 artists who live in areas closely bordering Ceredigion can also join the Trail.
Trail Members benefit from a full page entry in the printed Trail Guide (10,000 copies) and an entry and mini portfolio on the Trail website. We also publicise the trail using Facebook, Twitter and press releases. And, for the first time, we are including artists who aren’t able to open their studios for the Trail period but still want to take part.
Full members also can take part in various other exhibition opportunities the Trail provides each year. Last year these included Gas Gallery Aberystwyth, Nanteos Hotel, Talbot Hotel, Llanerchaeron NT, Tourist Information Centres and other venues.
Membership applications close March 31st 2015 but we would appreciate your earlier joining.
Directory of Ceredigion Artists
This year, we are launching the Directory of Ceredigion Artists for all year round promotion of artists and makers.
Directory membership is included in Solo and Group membership and there is a new membership category for 2015 – Directory of Ceredigion Artists Membership – for artists and makers to have an entry in the printed and online 2015 Trail Guide and Directory but who are not opening their studio for the August Trail.
You can also opt to appear in the online Directory only for a smaller fee. See the Membership choices section for details.
Membership for Galleries, Craft Shops, Organisations etc
If your enterprise is principally to do with Art or Crafts and you sell works by Ceredigion artists, you can join as a Solo Trail member and have a full page entry in the Guide and Directory.
Other types of businesses such as shops, cafes, hotels, pubs etc can take display advertising.
Ceredigion Art Trail is entirely dependent on volunteers and we have plenty of tasks for all members! Some opportunities for volunteering are mentioned on the application form.
