Saturday 3rd – Saturday 18th September 2022

All good things come to those who wait and Salisbury Art Trail is definitely one of those very good things, returning to Fisherton Mill and many more venues throughout the city in September 2022.

Fisherton Mill (venue 4) is delighted to be supporting the biennial Salisbury Art Trail. As well as a group exhibition in the Main Space ('Spectra'), which runs from Saturday 20 August to Saturday 24 September, the Mill is pleased to welcome a diverse group of artists, exhibiting on the first floor and cafe area for the duration of the Art Trail from Saturday 3 September to Sunday 18 September. Come and see a wonderful mix of paintings, felt and mixed media, photography, jewellery and sculpture from the following artists:

Henrietta Clare - Photography

Annie George - Paintings

Suzie Gutteridge - Felt and Mixed Media

Scarlet Leatham - Photography

Mariota Percival - Paintings

Louisa Saffioti - Paintings

Yvonne Steer - Sculpture

Monica Wilson - Jewellery

Also taking part in the Art Trail is the Mill's very own Tamsin Loveday (Studio 5 in the Trail Guide). Tamsin runs Barefoot Bindery from her Studio on the first floor of Fisherton Mill and will be offering a unique opportunity to view her personal sketchbooks and art journals. Tamsin will also be holding a workshop during the Art Trail on Sunday 11 September (details below).

We are open from Monday - Saturday and will be opening for one Sunday during the Art Trail - Sunday 11th September from 11 - 4 (on this Sunday the Café will be open for drinks and cakes only).
