Sixth Day of Ilkley Art Trail 2011

Yes Better weather as promised. 

This is a later blog than expected. Too much cultural stimulation brought on a migraine for the blogger but she is back in the saddle now!

Emma Fotherby, venue 5 exhibits her Emotional Mono prints, exquisite screen prints and ceramics which are well worth the trip up Curly Hill:


An insight in an 'Emotional Mono Print, again Emma Fotherby at venue 5:



Emma Fotherby's 'Kiss Catchers' at venue 5. Kiss one and give it to a friend, to keep:

Two radio interviews took place this week and here they are for your delectation and delight:

As well as this the Ilkley Gazette have a huge middle page spread covering aspects of the Trail, which looks great. I shall tweet the link when it becomes available but in the meantime - buy the Ilkley Gazette this week!

Onwards to Weaverbird Workshop, venue 27 and some really non-traditional takes on our fabulous Cow and Calf.
An Ilkley Art Trail visitor takes it in:


Philippa Horne's Cow and Calf  in felt at Weaverbird Workshops venue 27:

Then on to Ilkley Library for Hilary James work. Highly recommended, especially if you have children . Huge originals from her own children's books. Colourful and pensive too:




Graeme Willson at venue 23 and 24 ecclesiastical works and landscape:

You can see and smell this in a studio on the Trail, but not in many galleries. I know it's not just me that likes to see the process and evidence of an artists work... A studio floor!

And now for the big, big weekend...
