After a few weeks of planning and adapting to a new online model so you can all enjoy from the safety of your own homes, we’re proud to launch 2020’s Virtual Artists Trail, beginning today until 5th July.
Once again, the trail is proudly sponsored by Property World - our sincere thanks go out to them for supporting art locally in these challenging times!
Take a look at what’s in store below…
Each artist has their own gallery ready and available to view now! Over the coming weeks, we’ll continue adding more new artists, so make sure to check back regularly.
Artist’s work is available to buy from the artists- you might just find the perfect piece to brighten up your home during lockdown!
Want the full experience? Feel like you’re actually there by visiting a selection of 3D Galleries, which you can walk through, and take a guided tour to view the art as if you were there in person.
A little tip- these experiences work best when viewed on a computer/ laptop. New galleries appearing throughout the trail…
Starting from Mid-May, Artists will be hosting a whole range of interactive workshops, to brush up on your skills, or start a new hobby.
All our workshops will be listed on our website as they are confirmed. They’re all free, and we ask you to ‘pay what you can’ to support Sydenham Arts.
Supporting local has never been more important; a group of local businesses wil put one artwork from the Artists Trail on their website. Look out for the image whilst browsing their site and doing your online shopping. Collect each image to enter our prize draw! More info to follow later this month.
Are you a business and want to get involved? Contact Us here!
It’s not too late to participate as an artist! You can still enter and get your own gallery as part of the Virtual Artists Trail 2020.
ARTIST OF THE YEAR
All Artists who enter by 25th May will also have a chance of being named ‘Artist of the Year 2020’ for the Trail.
The winner, selected by the Sydenham Arts Artists Trail Panel will win a cash prize of £125 .
The ‘people’s choice’ winner, voted for by visitors to the galleries, will win a cash prize of £75 .
All shortlisted artists will be featured in a special Virtual 3D Gallery.
GOOD VIBES GUIDE-
What are you grateful for? Maybe its your Mum and Dad, a skill you have, food you love, a cherished possession, or style of music that keeps you going. Dedicate some time to let whatever it is know how much it means to you! You could write a letter to loved ones, create a shrine to you favourite musician or recreate your favourite place in miniature!
