‘Treasure’ represents the diverse and wide ranging work by artists based at the studio, covering many different disciplines including painting, sculpture, installation work, photography, film-making, printmaking and more. ‘Treasure’, like diamonds, promises to be a multi-faceted gem of an exhibition; treasure can mean many different things to different people, the work on show will reflect each individual’s personal interpretation of what treasure means to them, ranging from treasured artefacts to golden sunsets and everything in-between.
Treasure trail…follow the keys
Everything starts off with a treasure trail, leading to the Bath Artists Studios (BAS). There are three routes, marked out by big yellow keys stamped with the BAS logo, look out for big bunches of keys hanging in the trees, on lampposts, fences, walls; and chalked up on pavements and paths…they won’t be hard to miss, we promise.
The three key start locations are as follows:
Green Park trail: starting from Green Park Market, past Sainsbury’s and along the tow path;
Queen Square trail: through Chapel Row, onto Monmouth place and along the Upper Bristol Road;
Charlotte St car park trail: through the Royal Avenue toward Marlborough Buildings, Marlborough row and into Victoria Park.
Look out for the piper:
On the weekend 5/6 June, a wild bunch of musicians will be on hand to lead you from the area around Queen Square to Bath Artists’ Studios…tours advertised nearer the time.
When you get to here
And, on your arrival refreshments will be available, along with music, mayhem and general merriment…there may even be a pirate or two!
