This weekend 18th & 19th May 2019 Lady Bay will open its doors promising an exciting weekend of art and creativity.
Well known as a vibrant creative hub, Lady Bay is home to a number of professional artists, makers and designers, who live, work and have studios in the area.
Over 70 artists will be taking part this year.
Local artists opening their studios and homes in Lady Bay will exhibit & sell a range of art from paintings, textiles, illustrations, pottery, sculpture, jewellery, printmaking and photographs.
To give visitors added experience of what’s great about contemporary art in the region; Lady Bay also has invited artists to take part who have studios and businesses based in Nottingham and the East Midlands.
The Lady Bay Arts Trail is a great chance to explore 30 attractive venues, all within easy reach of each other. The Arts Trail will include community arts projects with creative displays in the gardens and free workshops at the School & other marked venues.
Children are particularly welcome since the organisers wish to support creativity and arts education for children and young people. So there will be free workshops advertised on the Arts Trail Website www.ladybayarts.org.uk This year’s theme for workshops is Water with a number of commissioned artists providing free workshops at the School.
Besides these attractions there will be several new venues opening and inspirational site-specific shows in All Hallows Church, Breckles Hall and the Scout Hall.
