Art Trail News 2015
The 2015 Bury Art Trail has come to a close for this year. The Art Trail was hailed a great success by the public, the participating businesses and the artists. Facebook and Twitter were buzzing about it for the duration. I could barely keep up with all the tweets and retweets - they served as a great ongoing validation of the process!
Art sales were made in some ulikely places and interest generated by the juxapostion and relevance of the art in the various shops. I would personally like to thank all those who joined in for their enthusiasm and their complete embrace of the this new idea of directly combining art with business for inclusion in Bury St Edmund's festival of 2015. This big thankyou also includes my sponsors; Bury St Edmunds County Council, The Suffolk Festival of Ideas, Premier Printers, Coastline Graphics, The Bury St Edmunds Festival and for all the postive press coverage from our local hub of news The Bury Free Press.
Before signing off I have to mention another great vote of thanks must go to Laura (Art Slave) Cook for her friendship, admin help and reliability and to another volunteer Sandra Todd who assisted so abley on the opening day at Elsey's Gallery.
Finally its a sad farewell to one of my favourite localartists Moira Hazel who along with her husband Jim is leaving Suffolk to relocate to Dorset. Good luck Moira you and your lovely work will be missed here.

"...An exciting art event combining twenty nine Bury St Edmunds town retailers and thirty businesses. The venues will partcipate in supporting and promoting the arts by exhibiting artist's work for sale in their windows. The professional artists involved in the project are all from the eastern region.
The exhibited work will form part of an Art Trail for the inaugural Bury St Edmund's Festival of Ideas, to be held for four days during the 2015 Bury Arts Festival.
The coverage of the proposed Art Trail will encompass all parts of the town both new and old, with work being represented in independent outlets and chains by a diverse range of artistic genres.
The trail guide leaflets will be available a week before the Trail opens from the Tourist Information point at The Apex, Charter Square Bury St Edmunds and from all participating stores.
The artist's work will be sensitively placed to reflect the genre of the business and or the window that will showcase the piece. The art diciplines represented will be 3D, (Sculpture and ceramics) painting, drawing,printmaking, kiln-fired glass, fine art photography and textile art. The artwork will be of the utmost quality and represent artist colleagues many of whom have previously sucessfuly exhibited with Hadley Exhibitions."
