Salisbury Art Trail ‘2020’
Dear Art Trailers & Plain Arts Members
As you are aware, in these unprecedented times, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Art Trail planned for June this year.
We have been assessing the question of rescheduling the Art Trail for next year or 2022 and there were many complex logistical factors to consider,
however we have come to the decision that the best course of action would be to postpone the next Art Trail until 2022 .
The precise dates for this will be circulated in due course although at the moment we have been considering September 2022 as the possible target.
We are of course open to your thoughts and views on this and would welcome any comments
We have now completed the refunds for all members who applied for the Art Trail and many thanks for your patience in this matter.
Also a big thanks to Committee member Karen Welsh who has worked so hard to complete the refunds in a reasonable time.

The 2018 Salisbury Art Trail marked the twelfth occasion of this biannual event.
Over the years the Trail has become ever more successful, vibrant and expanded. 2018 was no exception.
Over 100 artists took part in 55 venues, with amazing and diverse art across all mediums;
discovered in open houses, artists studios, pop up venues, offices, cafes, restaurants, galleries,
churches, workshops, hotels, colleges and more.
Two showcase venues; “ Trailblazers” at Wiltshire Creative Salisbury Art Centre and Salisbury
Library were highlights of the Trail. Exhibiting the wealth of talent and creativity of Plain Art artists
and an exciting taste of what was on offer through the city and out into the countryside.
The Art Trail offers a visual richness and creative perspectives, a visual culture that brings life to,
and be the pulse of, a city and it environs. Plain Arts has now become established within the
creative culture of the city and intends to further strengthen and enhance the artistic
community and the Trail going forward.
The success of this Trail, and all Art Trails, ultimately rests with the artists.
It is Plain Arts artists creativity and enthusiasm that make the trail and all deserve to be credited,
celebrated and acknowledged.
