So many local artists have come forward to exhibit in the first Wanstead Art Trail that the organisers are asking extra high street businesses to take part and are appealing for any empty shops to be used for the event.
Professional and amateur artists who live, work or attend art groups in Wanstead, Snaresbrook or Aldersbrook, and have not yet applied, are urged to act quickly – applications must close on Friday 21st May. Photography, 3D or multi-media work and sculptures are all welcome.
The trail will be launched alongside the Wanstead Festival on Sunday 19th September, running until the close of the following weekend. So there's still plenty of time for artists to produce work to be displayed in and around Wanstead High Street. Volunteers and the Wanstead Society are organising the event to promote local artists and our village high street.
Artists plus any local businesses that would like to be involved should contact Katriye Ibrahim on 07711 981314.
