Buckingham Fringe Festival - Inspiration Art Trail
Take the tour and see Buckingham from an artist’s perspective. In 2018 artist Cathy Read created a series of 50 paintings inspired by Buckingham and the surrounding area. See if you can find some of them. For the Buckingham Fringe Festival we have created a tour of the town where you can seek the real life inspiration for each painting.
There's also a chance to win a print of one of the paintings.
About the Paintings
The 4950 paintings are small architectural features dotted around Buckingham and the surrounding villages. They include features like chimneys, windows, doors, gates and floors. The challenge was to use each building only once and each architectural feature only once, although different materials in walls and windows accounted for some of the variations.
Why are they called the 4950 paintings?
