Between 29th June and 14th July 2019, and coinciding with Woolfest and Cockermouth Live, the community art trail ‘Meanders’ will be held in Cockermouth. Here artists showcase their work in retail shop windows, bringing art and colour to the high street. After the success of last year’s Meanders event it will run for two weeks. The theme is West Coast, focusing on our amazing environment, industry and heritage.
Maggi Toner-Edgar one of the directors and founder of the West Cumbria Artistic Network said: “This is a great collaboration.
“West Cumbria artists work mainly in rural and remote locations, and we can provide opportunities to showcase their talent. We want to celebrate the West Coast in the theme of this years event, and the intention is to include retailers and townspeople as much as possible.”
West Cumbria Artistic Network is a branch of EVAN, a CiC Company founded 2 years ago, which aims to inspire artistic people to get creative and provide the opportunities to showcase their work. Artists meet regularly, take part in events, and gain priority access to art opportunities.
