Modern Art Inspired by the Past
After the success of last year, the Merton Arts Trail is back again this September, featuring dozens of local artists who are displaying their work all around the Merton area.

Among others, artists will include painter, Vanessa Birley, ceramics worker, Sandy Layton, and photographer Sue Evans.

There will be a number of events taking place between the 22nd of September and the 7th of October, such as the Art Show at St. Mark's Church on the 29th, which is being organised by the Worple Group. There will be over 200 original paintings and drawings for sale, and Keith New will be displaying his special collection of stained glass windows.

Then on the weekends of September 29th & 30th, and October 6th & 7th, 'News from Nowhere' will be held at Merton Priory's Chapter House. The name is taken from the title of a book by textile designer, William Morris, who founded the textile factory at Merton Abbey Mills.

Twelve artists who have been inspired by his work are going to exhibit their contemporary art at the priory. As Merton Priory is rarely open to the public, it is a rare chance to see inside.

Tot Art will also be running children's workshops over the course of the trail. It is open for children 2 to 10 years old. If you are interested in your children carrying on these workshops, Tot Art hold regular classes during term time, which you can book at their website.
