Get on the Art Trail!

The Western Open Studios and Art Trail gets underway today (Thurs)

There's a chance to see artists at work in their own studios, art exhibitions in public venues and an art trail of shops hosting displays of work.

The event has been organised by The Creative Network, an island-wide, cooperative group of artists working together to promote visual arts in the Isle of Man.

This is the network's latest major public event, showing the work of 46 artists in 30 assorted venues in the west of the island. It builds on the success of the inaugural trail last year which attracted 1000 visitors.

Organiser Myra Gilbert says this year's event is bigger and over a longer period

Admission to venues is by Trail Guide, costing £2.00 for each adult visitor and children join in for free.
The Trail Guide and Map can be bought from Celtic Gold, Patrick Church and the Isle Gallery at Tynwald Mills.
