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 on display.
Thank you to our ongoing sponsor local retailer, Cymbeline Art & Cards for their generous prize of an Annual Membership to the Royal Academy.
