Open studios at Bull Mill

WYLYE valley artists Nick Andrew and Tanya Hinton have their summer open studios at Bull Mill, Crockerton near Warminster, from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th July.

Nick and Tanya will be open all day, from 10am to 5pm all three days. There will be a lot of new paintings and drawings to see in our studio, including the two pictures here (Nick Andrew’s Ousaria and Dionysus, oil on reclaimed wood, by Tanya Hinton).

Meanwhile, young artists and makers aged 25 or under, from south west Wiltshire, are invited to apply for sponsorship to hold an exhibition as part of the 2023 Wylye Valley Art Trail.

The Arts Society Wylye Valley (ASWV) is offering sponsorship of a selected young artist to the tune of £500, to help pay for materials, venue costs, presentation and any other expenses relating to staging an exhibition.

The Art Trail, which was founded by Nick Andrew, is widely recognised as one of the great cultural events in Wiltshire’s artistic calendar and just won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The winning candidate will get fantastic exposure as well as support and encouragement during the early stages of their creative career.

Applications for the Wylye Valley Young Artist Award open online at from the start of August 2022 and close at the end of September, with the winner announced by the middle of October,. The artist or maker can be working in any discipline –  painting, sculpture, textiles, furniture, glass, bookbinding, prints, ceramics, leather or jewellery.
