Calling All Young Artists!

If you’re 25 or under, from south west Wiltshire and a maker of anything visual – paintings, sculpture, textiles, furniture, glass, bookbinding, prints, ceramics, leather, jewellery, you name it – you could be sponsored to hold an exhibition as part of the 2023 Wylye Valley Art Trail.

The Arts Society Wylye Valley (ASWV) is very generously 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; meanwhile, the Wylye Valley Art Trail is waiving the entrance fee for the selected candidate.

The Art Trail is widely recognised as one of the great cultural events in Wiltshire’s artistic calendar – it’s just won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – so 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, so get making, and start applying!
