Thurrock Art Trail – This year because of the continuing Covid-19 situation, Thurrock Art trail won’t be at the Horndon on the Hill Feast & Fayre, which would normally take place over the weekend of 26th – 27th June. Instead of artists displaying their work in Art Lane, Thurrock Art Trail 21 will be online as a virtual trail. It’s a great opportunity for all artists living or working in Thurrock to show their work. In fact, we’re able to include a larger number of artists because we won’t be limited by physical space. If you’d like to be part of Thurrock Art Trail 21 this is what to do:

  • Take a high resolution (200dpi) photograph of one piece of your work.
  • Write a short piece about yourself and your work: include information about influences and inspiration. Give a price for the piece you are submitting.
  • Give details of your website/Instagram/Facebook page/ contact details so people can get in touch with you directly. (We will not sell your work for you.)
  • There is no charge to artists exhibiting in the Thurrock Art Trail 21 Virtual exhibition.
  • Send the files to: [email protected] before the beginning of August 2021

Your work will be on the website for the rest of the year but let us know if the work you’re showing has been sold. You can send a photo of another piece of work but don’t forget to send a new price and description with it. (Please note that the Trustees of the Thurrock Art Trail will moderate and curate what is included in the exhibition.)

Estuary Festival Presented and organised by two Arts Organisations either side of the Thames, Metal in Chalkwell, Essex and Cement Fields at the University of Kent. The Estuary 21 Festival will run from 22nd May – 13th June 2021. The full Estuary 2021 programme is now up on the website and it all looks excellent:
