Art Trail 2021, Green Door


Our Art Trail will return on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 2021.  More than 40 artists based in 23 venues across South Cumbria and North Lancashire will be opening their doors to the public.

Visitors will find a wide range of original art including textiles, painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, glass, pastels and mixed media.  There will also be those popular small and special treats, including greetings cards.

Meet and talk to the artists, view their work, and find out more about the techniques they use the inspiration behind their work.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to visit our talented members in their homes and studios to discuss, admire and purchase their work - and recognise just how much original art is created in our area.

Trail venues can be found across the south of the county from Sedbergh, over to Kendal, down to Milnthorpe and Burton, and then across to Newby Bridge and Ulverston.  Group venues are the Athenaeum at Leasgill near Milnthorpe and Space2Create in Kendal.

All Trail venues are open on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September and a number are also opening on Friday 24 September.  Look out for timings in the catalogue as you plan your route.  Download a catalogue from or pick one up from outlets around the area. Look out for the distinctive, colourful stripes on the cover.

There's something for everyone.  It’s a great way to spend a day or the whole weekend – on your own, with friends or as a family.  Over the weekend, look out for the green and purple signs, they will guide you to our Trail venues!

Most venues are open 10.00 - 5.00 each day but check the catalogue for each venue. Free entry to all venues.

You can also keep up to date through our Facebook page – Green Door Artists - and follow us on Instagram and Twitter where we’re GreenDoorArt or on You Tube where we’re Green Door
