The trail is over for another year, but what a trail it was! Ilkley Art Trail 2015

It was wonderful bringing the Art Trail back to Ilkley this year – 44 artists exhibiting this year using 26 venues, including for the first time the Town Hall in Ilkley.  the trail was very busy, with venues reporting increased visitors and many positive and supportive comments. We hope everyone who attended enjoyed seeing inside this important building as well as viewing some great art.  Kathryn Fox’s ‘Hide and Seek’ – trail within a trail, also proved very popular.

We also helped stage a number of interesting events this year..

  • 2 outdoor art installations on Ilkley Moor
  • Art Fund – Edible Masterpieces event
  • Art Workshops inspired by our artists

These were well received, and we intend to continue to support and stage events through the year. Go to the events page to see the up to date information on all of planned events and see details of those already held.

Most of all, we want to thank our supporters, the artists and the visitors who made the trail such a great event.
