Welcome to the A127 Trail 2011. Following on from the success of the Basildon District Art Trail last year, the newly retitled A127 Trail was established and is now recognised as a community event of some magnitude to the borough, which aims to bring the arts and business together.
Over 60 artists are taking part in the Art Trail this year between the 9th - 18th September. I am lucky enough to be exhibiting my drawings and paper sculptures at Glass From the Past, based at Barleylands Craft Village and will be posting pictures of my work over the next week.
You can pick up a copy of the brochure from any of the art venues including Dean Smith art at Barleylands Craft Village, Basildon Eastgate Art Gallery, Starbucks, Gateway 97.8, Eastgate Shopping centre, Past Times, Basildon Library, Towngate Theatre, The Fold in Billericay and Summerhill Garden Centre.
Whether you are a serious art collector, or just enjoy browsing there is something to suite everyone's taste on this years trail from drawings, painting, illustrations, photography, contemporary sculpture, textile work, mosaic and much more.

The Trail at Barleylands
The trail at Basildon, Make sure you take some time to look in the Basildon Eastgate Art Gallery to see artwork by amateurs, professional artists and local children. A fabulous venue that illustrates how important art is to the local community. Since opening a couple of months ago the gallery has had 12000 visitors!
