Essex Summer of Art goes virtual

Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Essex Summer of Art, an event which has supported over 160 art trail and open studio exhibitions in the county during the last decade, will this year be held online for the very first time.

With over 50 artists involved, the Essex Summer of Art gallery will showcase unique and inspiring artworks ranging from visual art to sculptures and jewellery.

Virtual visitors can explore the exciting and eclectic collections on the Explore Essex website, discovering beautiful Essex-inspired landscapes, still lifes, and even pieces inspired by the current lockdown.

The artworks, which range in price from £20 to £1,500, can even be purchased direct from the artists.

The online gallery will offer the artists the opportunity to engage with residents in a way that they haven't been able to do before, and at the same time showcase the vibrant and creative culture sector that exists within the county.
