Art students from Trafford College create town wide art trail in Altrincha

Altrincham Business Improvement District, the BID will be supporting Trafford College’s final year art students during the first two weeks of July with a town wide display of their work.

The artwork will form a town centre art gallery in the windows of businesses and shops. Each piece of work will be accompanied by information and a QR code which will allow visitors to find out more and view the online digital gallery on Trafford College’s website.

Jane Andrew, Head of Art & Design at Trafford College explained, “Last year’s hugely successful show was hosted online and for 2021 we wanted to find a way of creating an outdoor gallery. We are really grateful to Altrincham BID and the town’s businesses for helping us to create this fabulous art trail”.

“By visiting the college’s town wide art show you’ll be able to get a real sense of the fantastic quality of work that has been produced this year by our students. The work on show is a sample of just what can be achieved on a creative art course, and we are extremely proud of this year’s students who as ever have been bold and ambitious in their work”.

Kate Gerbich, Business & Communications Manager from Altrincham BID said, “We were really pleased to be able to help Trafford College with this project, the college is such an integral part of the town, and we’re delighted that this year’s final year students will get to the display their work to a wider audience. We would really encourage visitors and the local community to come and support the students and have a look at the exhibition”.

The exhibition will be available for visitors to view from 30th June- 14th July, and participating businesses are dotted throughout the town from Ashley Road to Church Street, and everywhere in between.
