2013 Ilkley Art Trail Artists to be announced soon!
Submissions are now closed. Trail dates this year will be from 9 – 13 October (New five day format) New also for 2013 - a panel of: Professor Ann Sumner, (formerly Director of Birmingham Museums Trust, now Yorkshire’s gain and living locally), Gemma Yates (from the Curatorial team of Hepworth Wakefield) and Christopher Smith (former exhibitor with Ilkley Art Trail and contemporary artist of regional significance) have deliberated over submissions and processing is underway!
Ilkley Art Trail is celebrating the news that in 2012, footfall recorded for the Trail was increased from the inaugural year to 4,000 and art sales made by participating artists generated £20,000 over the duration of the Trail! This is amidst really useful and positive feedback from our responding audience, and improvements have been implemented as a result. 97% of responders said that Ilkley Art Trail was either better or at least as good an experience as other established Art Trails they had visited.
For a flavour of artists who have previously shown, the pdf of 2012′s programme is still down-loadable (below):

And this is how it was…
Do have a look here at a video of previous Ilkley Art Trails:
For 9 days in October 2011 and again in 2012, the lovely Yorkshire town of Ilkley had an Art Trail with Open Studios and other venues. Some venues were open for the full 9 days, with participation swelling over both weekends as artists opened up their studios, homes, garages and invited all to see their work.
All venues were free to visit.
Many thanks to all who made this possible!
Many thanks go to our patrons for 2013:
