Welcome to TRAIL we will be on the seafront again in 2017 from 23rd July – 2nd September 2017 we will open for submission in the new year.
Teignmouth Recycled Art In Landscape 2016 was a great success. This year we focused on Teignmouth Seafront for our outdoor sculpture trail. We were joined by The Met Office for a two day sand sculpture workshop on Teignmouth Beach at the beginning of August and we were funded by the UN supported Captain Planet Foundation to create a sculpture with TCS Mill Lane School, this is now in their wildlife garden.
We have been generously funded by Devon Community Fund this year, which allowed us to run recycled art workshops for Teignmouth Carnival week and funded artists to make sculptures with local community groups. We were one of the green token boxes in Waitrose, Teignmouth and thank them for their on going support for our event.
We are run entirely by volunteer staff and it is free to exhibit with us. However, we need help with the costs of running the TRAIL and we would like to offer our warmest thanks for the generous support we have received from local businesses and organisations who have donated time and money to the event.
We will once more be offering advertising to local businesses and you can sponsor a flowerbed for the excellent price of £50 for 2017. This gives you 6 weeks seafront advertising and a link on our website (see below) and invitations to our award ceremony. We are also looking for businesses to sponsor our prizes! Artist prize £500 Community prize £100 and the public vote. Providing a cash prize attracts professional artists from a wider area and encourages a high standard of work, which in turn attracts more visitors to the town.
