The streets of Billericay have become a canvas for an array of artwork.

The Billericay Art Trail features work by a raft of artists at shops, businesses and restaurants in the town, until July 20.

This year’s selection of works includes pet portraits, porcelain pots, townscapes, mosaics, decorative acrylic abstracts and ceramics.

The Hub at St Mary Magdalen, in High Street, will showcase one piece of work from each artist, along with information about them.

The Billericay Arts Festival will run alongside the event.

There will be Jazz in the Park on Saturday, July 12, a musical open mic night on Tuesday, July 15, and storytelling on Thursday, July 17.

There will also be a variety of music and choral events.

The art trail will also feature art produced by children from Billericay and the US.
