After two years of absence the Leek Open Studios and Art Trail is due to return in style.

The concept of turning the main streets of Leek into a living art gallery, giving local artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in local shops and businesses, is returning in May.

In addition local artists and makers will be opening their studio spaces and galleries to the public, so that you can see them at work too.

The diverse range of work is available for purchase and includes; watercolour and oil paintings, collage, photography, drawing, contemporary textiles, print making, ceramics and glasswork. All work demonstrates the high level of professionalism, originality and imagination produced by over 25 local artists.

Event organiser, Kim Bradford commented ‘we are all so excited. We’ve tried to be as creative as possible. We can’t wait to show everyone just how vibrant the art community is here in Leek, It’s becoming an established artisan destination’.

Leek Open Studios takes place on Saturday 7th May 2022 and the Arts Trail begins on Saturday 7th May and finishes on Saturday 14th May 2022.
