Get involved with the Shrewsbury Arts Trail this year by making your mark on a giant, community-created installation, click the button above to download instructions and get involved!


 Shrewsbury Arts Trail CIC is inviting people of all ages to unleash their inner creative and contribute to a huge art installation which will be installed in the Community Gallery at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery (SM&AG) during the Shrewsbury Arts Trail in July and August. Deadline to submit artwork 9th June. 

This ambitious, Shropshire-wide project, delivered by artist Clare Scarlett, aims to involve people young and old across our community - from seasoned artists to budding enthusiasts - to play a part in this summer’s Arts Trail. 

Shrewsbury Arts Trail founder Jess Richards said she hopes the project will foster a sense of unity and belonging within the community:


"The idea is that everyone can get involved in the mark-making, so that when they come to visit the exhibition they can search for their name and colour and find their own contribution. 

In the workshops, we'll be going through the spectral colours of light - linked to the idea of sunlight and solar time - and the Arts Trail theme of Time this year. We want to inspire as many people as possible of all ages to get involved in the workshops and we'll also be sending out information packs to schools, community groups and care homes on how to join in."

All submissions for the community art project must be received by June 9th. Submissions can be dropped off at Shrewsbury Arts and Crafts, in Windsor Place - or you can request pickup from community groups within the loop of the river. 

And remember that the deadline is 17th May for Open Exhibition submissions (All ages welcome!) to the Shrewsbury Arts Trail for your chance to be exhibited at SM&AG along with The Parade Shopping Centre and The Market Hall throughout July and August.
