Studio Flox proudly stands as one of the esteemed hosting venues for the upcoming Creative Mile Brentford Art Trail, scheduled to take place from September 1st to 3rd. We are thrilled to welcome art enthusiasts, visitors, and the entire Brentford community to this spectacular event that celebrates creativity, culture, and the vibrant arts scene in the heart of West London.
Creative Mile is a one-of-a-kind event that captures the spirit of artistic expression and community engagement. As it enters its third year, the Brentford Art Trail promises to be a captivating journey into the world of local artists and makers. With a rich history and a diverse range of talents, the Brentford creative community comes to life during this remarkable event.
Last year’s event saw an incredible turnout, with over 3,000 people coming together to immerse themselves in the world of art. This year, we anticipate an even larger gathering of art enthusiasts, curious minds, and those eager to explore the dynamic cultural landscape of Brentford.
Diverse Artistry on Display
From the strokes of painters to the intricate craftsmanship of printmakers, from the innovation of hatmakers to the raw beauty of ironworks, and from the delicate artistry of ceramicists to the transformative vision of sculptors, Creative Mile is a testament to the boundless creativity that defines Brentford. This art trail provides a unique opportunity to dive into the diverse world of artistic expression, where traditional craftsmanship meets contemporary innovation.
Experience the Spectrum of Venues
The excitement of Creative Mile extends beyond individual artists, encompassing a multitude of venues that contribute to the event’s charm. This year, we are proud to be part of an even greater number of participating venues. From old industrial spaces steeped in heritage to modern studios and galleries, from vibrant arts centres to captivating museums, Brentford comes alive with creativity in every corner.
Celebrating Water: A Unifying Theme
As Brentford’s history is intertwined with waterways such as the Thames, River Brent, and the Grand Union Canal, this year’s Creative Mile pays homage to these influential elements. Our artistic theme revolves around water, symbolising the connection between Brentford’s past and its future. In a collaborative effort with the Totally Thames festival, Creative Mile becomes a conduit for exploring the profound relationship between art and water.
