TRAIL August 2011 Trail Recycled Art In the Landscape.
T.R.A.I.L. is an Artists led organisation exploring the themes of recycling and the environment through an annual gallery exhibition and sculpture trail (with sculptures made from materials destined for landfill sites )in the popular coastal region of Teignbridge and Dawlish in South Devon. Followed up by some of the sculptures being exhibited at venues in Torbay. Artists from many areas of the country participate in this ever growing popular event.
The sculpture trail and exhibition are a successful collaboration between T.R.A.I.L. artists, Teignmouth District Council, Teignmouth Regeneration and generously sponsored by Arts and Business and further by local businesses makes this a totally inclusive event in which everyone could participate.
TRAIL was 5 years old in 2009 and to celebrate, along with the established sculpture trail, launched a new initiative, an exciting extravaganza of wearable art/sculpture inspired by TRAIL’s concern for the environment and climate change.
The event took place to a packed house at The Carlton Theatre in Teignmouth and comprised a catwalk show and collaborative performance pieces.
Judges from the creative industries representing the visual arts, performance, and fashion acted as adjudicators to award prices for the best catwalk costume and the best collaborative piece.
