The Wylye Valley Art Trail (WVAT) is an award-winning biennial festival of visual art and craft in South-West Wiltshire. Visit open studios and workplaces, group exhibitions and galleries. Meet and talk to artists and craftspeople. Watch and experience the creative process in action! Maybe purchase or commission an original piece of art.
The last Art Trail ran from 29 April to 8 May 2023 and is still available to view on this website. Just click FOLLOW THE TRAIL to start!
The next Wylye Valley Art Trail will run from Saturday 3 to Sunday 11 May 2025. If you are an artist, maker, craftsperson, gallery or art group interested in taking part, please contact us.
You can still download the 2023 Art Trail Guide as a low-res PDF file click here.
Much of the art is for sale and many artists and craftspeople will work to commission.
Many of the artists and craftspeople welcome visitors beyond the Art Trail dates (please phone beforehand to check).
We are hugely proud that, in early 2022, Queen Elizabeth II approved the QAVS National Assessment Committee’s recommendation that the volunteers of The Wylye Valley Art Trail should receive the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS). It was one of the final awards made by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth before she died.
This is a fabulous honour and reflects profoundly on everyone involved with WVAT over the past 23 years, from the organising teams through to the participants.
