Mytholmroyd Arts presents:

Mytholmroyd Art Trail including Solo Exhibition by Mary Loney.

On Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October, Mytholmroyd artists and craftspeople will be showcasing their work at venues throughout the village. 


The 2018 Mytholmroyd Art Trail is an exciting opportunity to see a wide variety of high quality arts and crafts.  Browse at your leisure, or purchase original work direct from established and new talent from this flourishing creative community.   Nearly 20 members of the Mytholmroyd Artist Network will be participating in the Art Trail.  A special guide and map will be available to from St Michaels church and other local venues. 

Artists include: Roger Barr (charcoal landscape drawings), Louis Benoit (pen and ink illustration), Moira Benoit (painting and sculpture),  Mark Burgum (drawing and painting), Francis Charlton (contemporary art), Alice Cullinane (children’s illustration), Catherine Edwards (leather bags and cases), Vanessa Guy (gothic and pop art and ‘Harry’ books), Annie Lawson (knitted items, cartoon books and cards), Sue Mitchell (clay sculpture), Lynda Thomas (print, books and paintings), Heidi Vilkman (illustrations and paper cut art) and many others.


The weekend also sees a rare opportunity to see a solo exhibition of paintings by Mary Loney, popular artist and teacher who has been working in the Calderdale area for many years.  Mary will be showing her large scale oil paintings at St Michaels Church Hall.

Mary’s work comments on the more vulnerable members of our society, exploring themes of old age and childhood, and the relationship between children and their parents. Her research into myths and fairy tales has uncovered similar stories and relationships that are repeated endlessly in all cultures. The viewer reads the visual clues and interprets the story to suit the society in which they live.   


Admission to all venues is free.
