A special opportunity to take a peek inside the studios of some of the finest artists in Cumbria. The coast area around Bowness-on-Solway which lies to the west of Carlisle on the Solway Firth is known locally as 'the island' and is home to a group of 6 professional artists. A great day out looking around a fascinating and diverse mix of studios whilst exploring this stunning AONB. Each artist will be on hand to discuss their creative methods and ideas as well as selling their work. Leaflets showing the route and places of interest will be available from TICs and museums throughout the county as well as a waymarked trail to guide you around.
Take time to explore this ancient landscape - internationally important salt marsh and raised bog areas make this a unique paradise for wildlife and artists alike! A warm welcome awaits. Read more about the artists and the ‘island’ on our Facebook page ‘Around The Island Art Trail’.
