Artist of the Day – in association with Aire Valley Arts

An important element of many previous Saltaire Festivals has been the opportunity for local artists to showcase their talents.

Although we cannot offer you a gallery to walk around we wanted to keep this important part of the festival DNA and so we have teamed up with Aire Valley Arts to present an “Artist of the Day” for the duration of the festival.

Every day we will introduce you to an artist, tell you something about them and then show you some of their work, all from the comfort of your own home!

Aire Valley Arts is a group of professional and semi-professional artists centered around the Aire Valley of West Yorkshire, in the North of England.Originally the group began as a small venture with just 7 members and by 1997 it had grown to 18 artists.
