Belper Arts Trail

Belper Arts Trail Online

During these difficult times, with so many arts show cancellations the Belper Arts Trail will take place this August as an online show with a website for you to purchase from the artists taking part. The online trail will take part during the bank holiday weekend, 30 and 31 August. 

A number of Banks Mill artists will be taking part this year including Susan Bedford, Kirstie Adamson, Sarah Perkins and Ruth Gray.

Susan Bedford will have a number of her artworks available along with their coordinated products, including cushion covers and coasters. All prices for the show will include postage and packaging. As an extension to the trail website, susan has created a dedicated page on her own website, showing a variety of products. You can contact Susan directly if you wish to make a purchase before or after the show. Check out Susan’s website for a preview of her show products.

Sarah Perkins will be showcasing her animal and wildlife artwork and accessories as well as her pet portraits.  Her wildlife range is available as original art, prints, cards, coasters, mugs and soft vegan faux suede cushions and can be purchased from both the Belper Arts website, as well as her online shop


Ruth Gray is predominantly a landscape artist working in atelier interactive acrylics and acrylic inks. Ruth is also an art demonstrator and workshop facilitator. Her town and landscape paintings portray her love of history and heritage. Ruth paints commissions and her work is also available as prints and cards.  Visit her website to see her work.


Kirstie Adamson is a magazine collage artist and doesn’t use any imagery from the magazines but uses the colours and textures as an alternative to paint. It is intentional that when viewing her work that the method used is not instantly obvious. At first glance it is often assumed that paint has been used, and only on closer inspection does it become apparent that the piece consists entirely of ripped and cut magazines.
