Art lovers enjoyed a stroll around sunny Pewsey last weekend for the village’s Art Walk.
Pubs, shops and homes joined the gallery and the Heritage Centre in displaying artwork.
Shop premises were themed, with Boots showing off GP Simon Ralfe’s paintings and JM Dog Grooming featuring dog portraits.
More than 40 artists, artisans, musicians and poets showcased their work.
The event was organised by local artists and Pewsey residents and was a huge success, attracting six times more visitors than last year. Maps directed people around the village.
Pewsey Vale School pupils also exhibited their work in the Royal Oak.
Pewsey artist Sylvia Clayden said: “Pewsey remains the creative centre of north Wiltshire and the energy in the village on Sunday afternoon highlighted this.”
The Heritage Centre welcomed more than 270 people, exhibited paintings and sculptures, and hosted poetry and music from Yirdbards and Harmonius.
