The Artists

A call to artists is sent out 10 months before the exhibition opens in August asking for submissions from artists interested in creating site specific work for the Sculpture Trail. Curator, Sarah Cannell, then selects and rejects from the applications received and in early February the first on site meeting with artists is held and spaces are allocated. Between February and the August installation artists create work in their studios with as many site visits as are necessary. The artists range from established creatives who make their living through making and selling artwork to people just setting out on a career of creativity and everyone in-between.
