EVAN West Art Trail

Saturday 16 June to Sunday 24 June

Open every day, 10am to 4pm


We are very excited to be an official venue for the first ever EVAN West Art Trail, taking place this June across West Cumbria.


Organised by Eden Valley Artistic Network, the EVAN West Art Trail is running in conjunction with this year's EVAN Art Trail (which covers the central and north of the county).


For nine days you will be able to visit artists in their studios, see exhibitions and buy original artworks across West Cumbria.

EVAN aims to bring art to an audience.  They are a group of artists, organisations and venues based in the North Lakes, West Lakes and Eden Valley formed from the concept that an artistic network should be friendly, welcoming and inviting, EVAN is an inclusive organisation and welcomes all artists, from those just starting out on the artistic path to those who are creative professionals with a contemporary attitude. We think all artists have something to offer society.
