As part of this year’s event a sculpture trail around the city will be curated marking key points of historical and architectural interest with sculptures from a variety of established and emerging artists.
Work by Elisabeth Frink will be joined by pieces from Doug Clark, Deborah van der Beek and Jon O’Connor placed in sites around the city including the exceptional Bath Abbey, the grounds of the refurbished Holburne Museum and in the heart of the city on Old Bond Street.
Plus, the Bath Galleries Group’s charity partner, Art at the Heart will shed some light on the proceedings! Still glowing from last years Field of Light installation at The Holborne Museum, Bruce Munro will return to Bath to help celebrate the Royal United Hospital’s 80th Birthday and Cancer Care Centre with an original light installation entitled Brass Monkey.
This trail will be supported by talks from guest artists and specially curated exhibitions within each Bath Galleries Group member’s space to create a distinctive art fair, unique within the UK.
Highlights include a collaboration between Fine Grime Gallery and the International Artist Collective PRISMA featuring work never before seen in the UK, The Holburne Museum introduces a unique take on ‘subversive ceramics’ by Bouke de Vries who will also be part of bo.lee gallery’s wistful show depicting the transcience of life and redefining the passage of time.
Adam Gallery will host work from the American ‘pioneer’ of conceptual art Sol Lewitt whilst Quest Gallery will show original 20th century prints in collaboration with Marlborough Fine Art. Meanwhile Rostra Gallery will help Sir Peter Blake celebrate his 80th birthday with a show featuring a selection of his newest creations alongside rare archive pieces.
