Art Trek has been a much loved event in North Devon since 2003, during which time many talented local artists have welcomed hundreds of visitors into their homes, studios or workshops, showcasing the huge diversity of their art and craft.
With a year-on-year reduction of local authority funding, Art Trek was unable to continue in its original format, so in 2014, North Devon Arts (NDA) stepped in to take over its organisation, re-naming the event NDArt Trek and keeping it at a fairly basic level for the first year, then scaling up in 2015 to 43 venues involving over 100 artists.
Following the success of NDArt Trek 2015 and taking into account all the feedback from artists and visitors, we took the decision to change the timing of the 2016 event to September, coinciding with Devon Open Studios and Somerset Open Studios.
NDA will continue to organise NDArt Trek and are open to ideas and suggestions about future events. We welcome feedback from artists and visitors.
