Arts Trail 2021

October 17th - November 1st 2020

SHAF Arts Trail:

The annual SHAF Arts Trail is one of the biggest art events in the South Hams. It takes places annually during the second half of October. In 2020 it will run from October 17th to November 1st. There will be close to 70 SHAF artists participating in the Trail, exhibiting and selling their work in up to 30 venues across the South Hams. The SHAF Arts Trail provides an opportunity for visitors to view and buy work directly from the makers.  On the Trail, visitors will discover  paintings, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery, lampshades, mosaics, hand-turned wooden items and furniture, felt, paper and textile art, photography, basketry, printmaking and much more.

SHAF artists taking part in the Trail work and exhibit in a wide variety of venues. Some artists work on their kitchen tables, others in purpose-built studios; some work alone, others in an artists’ collective. So visitors to SHAF Arts Trail venues will find some artists exhibiting in their homes and studios, others in galleries, exhibition halls, hotels and pubs. Following the Arts Trail provides a wonderful opportunity to explore in and around the glorious South Hams, and discover places you never knew existed.

The Arts Trail Brochure provides ‘at a glance’ information to enable visitors to plan their route: There is a map of the area showing where all participating artists may be found, and venues are listed for easy reference; one page lists Venue Opening Dates and Times; and another page lists artists by name, together with their venue and the page on which they appear in the brochure, so if visitors are on the trail of specific artists they will have no problem locating them.​

Following the Arts Trail enables visitors to discover the latest works of their favourite artists ... and find new artists and types of artwork to add to their ‘favourites’ list. Have a wonderful time and don’t forget to stop for a delicious lunch or cream tea at one of the cafes, hotels, pubs and restaurants advertised in the brochure.
