Website Design by Studio 18

Our aim is to provide a platform for artists who live and work locally to show their work within the local communities in Wokingham and the surrounding area. Along with this we strive to create a varied and interesting experience for the trail visitors by selecting artists using a range of media to create good quality, well presented, and innovative work.

How does the process work?

The organising starts in January each year when a timetable is worked out for applications and selection. The application form is available on the website early in the year and all artists are asked to submit images of their work, even if they have exhibited previously. This is to ensure the high standard is maintained from year to year and that work included on the trail is always fresh and interesting. New applicants are asked to bring work along to an independent selection committee, who look for quality, originality and good presentation.

During the selection process, preference is given to Wokingham Borough artists, and then additional artists who have applied are selected, whose work will create a varied and interesting trail.

Successful artists are informed as soon as possible and they are asked to submit a photograph of their work plus a very short description to be included in the publicity leaflet, together with contact details and the fee, by the set deadline.

We encourage artists to exhibit in their own space and see this as a very important aspect of the trail because while visitors are always very interested in seeing your finished work, they are usually keen to understand how, where and with what equipment you make it.

Committee members will be looking for suitable venues for those who don’t have their own studios, and placing those artists in groups where the work will compliment each other.  Some of the venues are kindly given free of charge for the artists to use.

We hope that the trail we have designed for 2016 will inspire you to want to come and be part of our 6th WAT. The application can be downloaded from our website.
