Following the great success of the RCS Bath Art Prize Hope and Humanity in the Commonwealth earlier in the year at 44AD artspace, a selection of the exhibits went on display at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. These then went on to be displayed at The Royal Bath and West Showground Art Centre in Somerset as part of the Jubilee Celebrations.
Members, guests and our branch president the Lord Lieutenant of Somerset Annie Maw then came together at a special preview on June 1st to view the exhibition of winning entries.
The evening organised by Mark Coreth at the Bath and West and his staff also gave guests the chance to find out more about the work of the RCS Bath and talk with members. Anita St John Gray, trustee and project leader of the art prize together with Katie O’Brien from 44AD artspace in Bath worked extremely hard to make this possible and were also joined at the exhibition by Georgie Southwell, a member of staff from Trinity Church School, Radstock. Trinity Church who were awarded the first prize in the 11 year and under category for a spectacular pair of dove wings which had been created as a whole school collaborative artwork. Over the three days that the Royal Bath and West was on the art exhibition was very well attended by people from all over the UK and beyond.
