Information for visitors

The Severn Vale Art Trail offers the chance to see and meet artists and makers in their own homes and studios, churches, local businesses, community halls or even pubs!  It brings creativity to every corner of the community and all venues are free!  You can visit artists in their own studios and experience their work where it is created or see a group venue where multiple artists will be exhibiting in a welcoming and creative environment. Spend just an hour, an afternoon, a day or even several days exploring the Severn Vale Art Trail and enjoy the opportunity to view and purchase original artwork.

To plan your trail just browse the website to see all the artists involved.  View the Trail Map to see the whole trail and click on a pin to see where artists are exhibiting and to get directions.  Follow the links to the artist's page to see more details of their work, location and opening times.  If you wish to see a specific artist you can look them up on the Trail Artists page where all artists are listed alphabetically (by surname).

Please check opening times carefully to avoid disappointment.
