Totterdown Art Trail

The Front Room Art Trail

Welcome to Front Room Art Trail Totterdown, Bristol. We are the oldest art trail in Bristol, where each year around 200 professional and amateur artists working in a wide variety of mediums display and sell their artwork to members of the public.

This year we hope to attracted 200 local artists across 90 different venues, with thousands of visitors coming from across the city and beyond. It’s a fantastic opportunity for local artists to display their work to the public, and it’s also a great opportunity for the public to visit, view, discuss and buy original works of arts and crafts directly from the artist.

Art trail 2016

We had an amazingly successful 2016, our thanks to all artists, venues and organisers. The artists currently displayed on the website are from last year, in April this year artists for the forthcoming 2017 Art Trail will be added to the website. In the meantime the website will be undergoing a little updating and a new theme added – see below.

Art trail 2017

This year, the dainty and precipitous streets of Totterdown will fleetingly become home to the delightfully raucous Totterdown Arts Trail . Now in its 17th year, Bristol’s longest-running Arts Trail plans to celebrate the boundless talent of the many creative folk who inhabit this lovely quarter of Bristol by holding a circus-themed festival. Registration will be open in April 2017, and those participating will open up their homes and studios to curious visitors who will gain a glimpse into the world of art.

Fairytales, Myths and Legend

This year the Front Room Art Trail theme is going to be Fairytales, Myths and Legends, which doesn’t mean to say the art needs to reflect the theme, but expect to see some folklaw related ‘goings-on’.

Calling all artists, come and join our 2017 Art Trail, sign up from April onwards.

If you are a local purveyor of fine food, a pub, bar etc or if you have a venue you make available to the Art Trail we would love to hear from you.
