Fisherton Mill is a major sponsor and key host venue for the biennial Salisbury Art Trail, taking place from Saturday 8th to Sunday 16th October 2011.


Owner of Fisherton Mill, Deborah Fox, says Sponsoring the 2011 Art Trail provides a significant way for us to support our artistic community. Salisburys visual artists have really raised the bar this year and on display at Fisherton Mill will be an array of striking exhibits in a range of mediums from sculpture and jewellery making to textiles and fine art.


An exciting collection of work will be on display from Fisherton Mills resident artists. Weaver Sarah Jane Wilson exhibits her contemporary hand-woven accessories and interior textiles produced on a traditional countermarch loom. Jeweller Elinor Cambray produces fluid, organic jewellery designs inspired by botanical forms and created from sterling silver, gold and gemstones. Paul Wilsons abstract stone sculpture takes inspiration from the natural world and geometric man made forms. Photographer Dominic Old exhibits his stunning equine photography and portraiture. Fine artist Georgianna Priestleys work captures on canvas, beautifully painted boxes and cards, the essence of natures endless spectrum of coloursusing oil, acrylic,water colours and pastels. Jeweller Sarah Morris exhibits her handmade jewellery inspired by colours and forms.


Fisherton Mills resident artists are joined by Elementals, six Wiltshire-based women artists who follow their 2009 Salisbury Art Trail exhibition with The Past is Another Country'. Each artist has interpreted the rich heritage of prehistoric Wessex in their own way through a process of research which included the study of artefacts from the WiltshireHeritage Musem in Devizes,ancient and modern maps and visits to prehistoric sites in the vicinity of Avebury, Stonehenge and further afield.


Also exhibiting at Fisherton Mill as part of the Art Trail is Amanda Fisher with a collection of thoughtful life drawings; Victoria Maxwell, whose travels around the south west inspire her dramatic coastal paintings as she responds to the physicality of the landscape and portrays the crashing, dramatic beauty of the area; Fran Donavans abstract stone sculpture; Rosemary Dickensons new installation The River based on freshwater fish of the British Isles incorporating appliqu, machine embroidery and ceramics. Joining these artists is Armcandi, whose unique jewellery collection features vintage jewellery re-designed into contemporary hand knitted and sewn wire necklaces and cuffs embellished with vintage diamante, freshwater pearls, vintage buttons and pearls.


With such a range of artists and mediums on display, Fisherton Mill is an Art Trail venue not to be missed and will be open every day apart from Monday during the Art Trail.


Furthermore, on Sunday 9th October, an Anonymous Travelling Market will be set up in the Mill courtyard with stalls and live music from 11am 4pm, during which time Fisherton Mill and all the Art Trail exhibits will also be open.
