In 2014 resident (and former Town Councillor) Iain McLauchlan approached the Town Council with an idea for an art project in Wades Park. The project involved installing a number of boards on the fence line between Wades Park and the railway line. The boards would show off local artists' talents whilst enhancing a dull-looking fence.
Art in the Park is now in its 9th year and has expanded from an original display of 6 artists to an extensive display of talent from over 37 local artists. We have an exceptional selection of art covering a wide range of subjects and different media.
Entries for 2022 are now closed and details on the finalists will be announced shortly.
Thank you to our ongoing sponsor local retailer, Cymbeline Art & Cards.
