What is the Shrewsbury Arts Trail?

Shrewsbury Arts Trail CIC is now in its fourth year, with a mission to bring unique and high-quality contemporary art to be enjoyed by the public for free. It celebrates our vibrant arts community and boosts the reputation of our county as an exciting and welcoming cultural destination.

In previous years it has enjoyed major national and international media coverage of its high-profile open air ‘Sculpture Trail’, with sculptures by Andrew Logan in 2022 and Salvador Dali and Jacob Chandler in 2023. 

This year’s ‘Sculpture Trail’ spotlights female British sculptors, Halima Cassell MBE, Almuth Tebbenhoff, Vice President of the Royal Society of Sculptors, and Alice Irwin whose work can be seen at St. Mary’s Church and Shrewsbury Castle, The Dingle in the Quarry Park and Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery respectively.

 

This year’s theme is ‘Time’ and the Museum is once again the venue for the ‘Inspirational’ exhibition featuring some of the biggest names in the artworld including David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Salvador Dali, Halima Cassell, Andrew Logan, Kris Lamba and Jacob Chandler. 

 

This year’s open exhibition featuring the work of local and regional artists will be held at the Market Hall, The Parade Shops and Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery and there will be other exhibitions and open studios at numerous locations in the town throughout July and August.

 

Other features of this year’s Arts Trail include a large-scale community project to create a stunning installation, workshops, demonstrations, talks and a children's’ treasure trail with prizes kindly donated by local businesses.
