Painting Paignton: Artist Heritage Trail

Event Date: 23rd Sep 2023 - 23rd Sep 2023

Artizan Collective is delighted to announce a weekend of outdoor art inspired by plein air tradition, as with the help of ten professional artists, we take over the streets and seafront to show off this creative town like you’ve never seen it before.
Day 1 – Painting Paignton: Artist Heritage Trail – Saturday 23rd September – 10:00-16:00
Eight artists take over Paignton to create new works on location across the town. Will you stumble across a couple of them, or walk the whole trail, discovering some of Paignton’s heritage treasures along the way and seeing them through the eyes of unique contemporary artists.
The “Painting Paignton: Artist Heritage Trail” starts from Paignton Harbour before taking a route around the Town via various locations. There are eight artists to meet all painting at Paignton sites with unique stories. Walk the trail, discover the history, and see Paignton in a new light.
