About New Mills Arts Trail
New Mills Arts Trail is a rich and exciting contemporary art trail held throughout the town. The trail has in the past been held at the beginning of the year but for 2012 we have teamed up with New Mills Community Festival, Friday 14th until Sunday 30th September , wwwnewmillsfestival.co.uk The New Mills Arts Trail works closely with local shop keepers and businesses with all artwork being primarily displayed in shop windows in the centre of town. This year there will be several other venues added to the trail.
The trail centres on the work of local and regional artists, with priority given to proximity to New Mills, but emphasis is always on quality of work with visual impact to create a striking display.
