BATH OPEN STUDIOS AT THE RUH
Artists and makers from five Bath Art Trails are showing works in our RUH Central Gallery from 1st October this autumn! Bath Open Studios (BOS) is proud to represent and promote all art and craft makers residing in the city. While fostering a greater awareness of the individual artist and allowing for each trail to retain its particular style, BOS is committed to supporting their practice and to raising the profile of art trails as a recognised outlet for the presentation of art and craft. Showing this selection in the hospital corridors is an exciting taste of the works which are created and available during the weekends of May or September each year.
Paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics and mosaic will be available to view, with a third of all sales going towards the Art at the Heart programme.

2019 BATH AND BEYOND PRIMARY SCHOOLS
ARTS FESTIVAL (BPSAF)
The BPSAF is an annual event which provides quality arts workshops and high-calibre, massed-school performance opportunities to 1000s of children in and around Bath.
Now in its 20th year, the festival was set up by Dr Anne Bull OBE, Head teacher of Weston All Saints Primary School. Recognising the enormous contribution that the arts make to a child’s development, she was determined that the quality of arts teaching that our young people receive should not be diminished, whilst schools are encouraged to focus on the core subjects.
This year the theme of the BPSAF has been “Inspiration and Imagination”.
This exhibition is a flavour of what is going on at Twerton Infants, Roundhill Primary School, Abbot Alphege Academy and Weston All Saints Primary School this term as part of the BPSAF. Children from the Reception Classes to Year 6 have responded in Paint, Print and Poetry to the work of artists and used their abundant imaginations to produce this inspiring artwork.
Profits from the sale of the children’s work will be shared between the RUH and the BPSAF.
