Creative Mile Set to Return This Year
Brentford Art Trail to take place in the first weekend of September
It has been confirmed that the Creative Mile is to return to Brentford later this year. Over 3 days there will be the chance to see the work of more than 70 artists in eight venues.
The Brentford Art Trail starts at the London Museum of Water & Steam, taking in the Musical Museum, Studio Flox, and Watermans Art Centre before winding its way down to the arts quarter on Catherine Wheel Road where you will find a hive of creatives spaces including The Lôft, Johnson’s Island, Redlees Studios and The Duke of London.
Last year over 3,000 people came to follow the trail and this year’s event takes place from 2 - 4 September.
Mr Mr Pearce, Artistic Director said, “I am delighted that Creative Mile will be taking place again this year. Local art events like this provide a great opportunity for the whole community to come together and celebrate creativity. Brentford has such a rich creative heritage and there is some amazing talent in the town. I hope that
Creative Mile aims for a relaxed and friendly festival vibe and is an opportunity to discover and support a variety of local creatives and hidden artist communities as they open their studios to the public for the weekend. There is also a chance to browse and buy original contemporary paintings, sculptures and prints. There will be a special late opening at some of the venues on Friday 2 September for a chance to have a sneak preview, mingle with the artists and have a drink.
This year the chosen theme is colour. This event will invite artists to respond in their own creative way to the theme and visitors are also encouraged to come dressed in rainbow hues.
