Ross Crawford 30th Jun, 2018

THE Studley Arts Trail is up and running with 19 businesses showcasing the work of some of the finest artists both locally and from further afield.

Overlapping with the annual Warwickshire Open Studios exhibition, there is something for everyone with live music and good food added to the mix.

Starting from the Artists Workhouse in Redditch Road, where a number of studios will be open, the trail includes The Heat Store where Redditch wool and felt artist Christine Rider has pieces on show.

Going up the High Street there are 12 businesses showcasing the work of artists, including the award-winning Tracy Susan Evans from Brighton.

Her pieces are in Lamberts Estate Agents, while Studley Florist once again displays the stunning work of cow artist Sam Morris from Tewkesbury.

The village hall features the work of the Studley Artists Collective while The Railway Inn is hosting an exhibition of Studley images and memorabilia.

On Alcester Road, don’t miss the stunning canvases of Cristina Celestina in the window of bridal shop Stella Lilliana.

Pen and ink expert – and local resident – Anneka Smith is exhibiting her work in PSW Paper & Print while Flair with Flowers is exhibiting several pieces by Michelle Brewer.

The trail runs until July 8 plus there’s a chance to win an original piece of art by Dawn Harris, the curator of the Artists Workhouse.

The Workhouse is also running its own exhibition, called ‘Balance’.

Offering a diverse show with more than 100 works, it continues until Sunday, July 1, from 11am to 4pm each day.

The Workhouse’s pop-up cafe will also be open.
