Maldon Art Trail 2014

Now in its seventh year, Maldon Art Trail runs from Saturday 27th September to Saturday 4th October throughout the picturesque town centre.

The Art Trail showcases the work of local artists in shops, cafés, and public buildings in and around Maldon. From paintings and photographs to sculptures, textiles, millinery, and paper-cutting, the diverse range of work on offer proves the talent of the region’s artists. The Museum of Power in Langford will again be hosting the Sculpture Trail, where local sculptors will be on show in the beautiful grounds.

We will be displaying art works from local schools in the Maeldune Heritage Centre, which is a fabulous place for art displays. The centre is home to the Maldon Embroidery, a 42′ long masterpiece created to celebrate 1000 years of Maldon’s history from the battle of Maldon in 991 to its unveiling in 1991. It also contains an art gallery, gift shop selling art and craft items, and many fascinating items collected from local archaeological digs.
