Community art trail Meanders has returned to Cockermouth.
The showcase of artists in the town centre started yesterday and will run until July 4.
The event, which coincides with Cockermouth Live, sees artists showcase their work in retail shop windows, bringing art and colour to the high street.
After successful trails in 2018 and 2019, it comes back after a break in 2020.
Maggi Toner-Edgar one of the EVAN directors and founder of the West Cumbria Artistic Network said: “West Cumbria artists work mainly in rural and remote locations, and this is a great opportunity to showcase their talent.
“We want to celebrate the west allowing talent to bring us back together since we have all been living on the edge for a while now, this was our collective concept during lockdown. The intention is to include retailers and townspeople as much as possible.”
What is West Cumbria Artistic Network?
