Thurrock Art Trail 2017: final call out for artists


15th July 2017 is the start date for the sixth annual celebration of visual arts, the Thurrock Art Trail. ThAT 2017 runs until 30th July and for the first time this year, as part of its Love Grays festival, Grays Town will also host its own Art Trail from 22nd – 29th July.

The Trails will showcase the creativity of professional and amateur artists, young and old from the area. Work in any visual medium, painting, sculpture, photography, textile art, ceramics, filmmaking, woodwork, assemblage, mixed media are welcome encouraged to participate. This is an opportunity to meet other local artists, and expose your work to a wide audience. We will be distributing 6000 programmes this year with a full list of all participating artists and venues!

Thurrock Art Trail is not all about two-dimensional visual arts: this year we have more opportunities for musicians and sculptors to get involved. We need
