Ilkley Art Trail 2015

It is wonderful to be bringing the Art Trail back to Ilkley this year.  The many messages of support when we took a year out last year have been very uplifting and we hope that you will love exploring the town, seeing some great art and getting a chance to talk with the artists about their work and inspiration.

We have 45 artists exhibiting this year using 26 venues.  We are delighted that one of these venues is the Town Hall in Ilkley which is the first time we have been able to use this great space as part of the Trail.  We hope everyone will enjoy seeing inside this important building as well as viewing some great art.  One of the artists is exhibiting in a variety of shops throughout the Town – called ‘Hide and Seek’ – try to find it!

We also have a number of interesting emerging events happening this year..

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

Go to the events page to see the up to date information on all of these events and,  to download a PDF copy of this year’s programme, click here or on the image to the right. Alternatively you can pick up a copy of the programme from these venues

We all hope you have a great Trail and find something new, thought provoking and inspiring in the art you see.

STOP PRESS! –  Shoo Social Media is now a venue for Peter Holt’s work during the trail… see venue B on the Trail programme and map to find them.

Correction: Please note that in the printed version of the programme,  Venue 15 (93 Skipton road) should be nearer to Victoria Avenue than it shows on the map It is shown on the wrong side of Venue 10 (140 skipton road) – it is in fact 240 ft away from 140 Skipton Road on the other side of the road.

Correction: Please note that in the printed version of the programme,  Venue 5  is no.8 Wells Promenade, and not Wells Road.
