THE VICTORIA ART GALLERY AND THE BATH SOCIETY OF ARTISTS 2017
This weekend The Bath Society of Artists 112th Summer Exhibition opened at The Victoria Art Gallery, Bath. The show will run until the 15th July 2017 from 10.30 am to 5.00pm each day. I’m glad to say that my marble sculpture ‘Conversation’ was selected and is now on display and is for sale. This sculpture is of an art deco design and represents the conversation and dialogue between two people, closeness and love. The sculpture measures 42 x 21 x 15 cm and is made from Italian Marble and has a Black Slate base. It was made in 2016.
THE BATH SOCIETY OF ARTISTS
The private viewing on Friday night at The Victoria Art Gallery in Bath had a record breaking turnout. Unfortunately, now that I am based in Edinburgh, it was difficult for me to attend but it was great to meet old friends when I went down to deliver the work a few weeks before.
There are more than 400 works of art on display from both members of The Society and non members. The work is varied and of high quality. The Bath Society of Artists is open to both professional artists and amateurs and there are some well-known artists involved. The Society currently has 120 members who are elected by The Executive Committee and many of them are exhibiting in the show. The Bath Society of Artists was founded in 1904. Many distinguished 20th century painters have exhibited with The Society including Walter Sickert, John Singer Sargent, P Wilson Steer, Gilbert Spencer, William Scott, Patrick Heron, Mary Feddon, Adrian Heath, and David Inshaw. Today, Peter Brown and David Cobley are both members.
The artworks have been selected by a panel of artists including The President of The Bath Society of Artists and The Director of The Victoria Art Gallery, Bath. This show is well worth a visit if you are visiting the beautiful city of Bath. Prices range from as little as £90 to £18,000.
