Affordable local art can be hard to find, but the Trinity Art Exhibition brings local talent and the community together. The 52nd Trinity Art Exhibition will take place on 13-14 May at the Parish Centre at Holy Trinity church on Hoghton Street, Southport.

Part of the Trinity Arts festival, The Trinity Art Exhibition has been a popular annual fixture on Southport’s cultural calendar. It has served as a platform for new and established artists alike to get their work shown in Southport. This year, The Trinity Art Exhibition will be a stop on the Southport Art Trail.

“Over the years we have seen the event grow and seen some great talent emerge. We also love welcoming back well-known local artists year after year, “said Robert McCrimmon, Trinity Art Exhibition’s event organiser. “We’re also very pleased to be a part of the Southport Art Trail this year.”

The event is a great opportunity to engage with local artists and to buy unique pieces of art for your home. Previous years have seen popular local artists such as Glen Keen, Anton Dolders, J.W. Fairclough and Polly Birchall showcase their works with some returning with new works this year.

While the exhibition focuses on paintings and photography, crafts are also a growing part of the event. Ceramic artist, Ally Charnock, will be demonstrating her skills over the weekend and other crafters will be there selling their wares.

If you are a budding artist, crafter or photographer there is still time to take part. Please go to our Facebook page(https://www.facebook.com/SouthportTrinityArtsFestival) or contact Robert McCrimmon on robertmccrimmon@hotmail.com.

Each hanging costs £3 and if you work is sold you get to keep 100 per cent of the sale price. All proceeds from the hanging fees go directly to Holy Trinity Church Southport.
