Follow Leigh Art Trail 2019
Leigh-on-Sea will be awash with art for one week in June. Discover amazing local artists by following the trail around the Essex coastal town…
From 8th-15th June, Leigh-on-Sea will look a lot more colourful as this year's Leigh Art Trail launches. Local cafes, shops, homes and even the train station will host the work of 60 local artists turning them into pop-up galleries.
The Leigh Art Trail's Wendy Scotland said: "There is a fantastic buzz for 2019." She added, "People can discover where their favourite artists are going to be and also see the exciting artists who are new to the Trail this year. We have 11 of those and we can't wait to introduce them to our visitors."
Follow the trail around Leigh-on-Sea to discover an array of work by painters, sculptors, ceramicists and more.
The Leigh Art Trail is an ideal opportunity to discover a new local artist and collect artwork for your home. You have the opportunity to commission work or buy direct from the artist at their venue. There is also a secret auction, so you can place a sealed bid on gorgeous pieces that you find along the Art Trail.
