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 artwork will be of the utmost quality and represent artist colleagues many of whom have previously sucessfuly exhibited with Hadley Exhibitions.
