Up-and-coming Exhibitions

CENTRAL GALLERY  27th April – 14th June 2018


Land + Sea: Exploring the world through Clay

Art at the Heart are teaming up with Action on Hearing Loss in Bath to display a new exhibition of ceramics in the Royal United Hospitals Central Gallery. The collection of artworks has been created in participatory workshops by adults who are Deaf with additional needs.

The work looks at shells and fossils, the natural and built environment, as well as animals and plant life. Using mosaic tiles, stone and earthenware clays and different coloured grouts and glazes they have sought to capture some of the beauty of the world around us.

This group of ‘artists’, although they wouldn’t necessarily call themselves that, attend ceramics sessions as part of the service they receive from Action on Hearing Loss, here in Bath.

Action on Hearing Loss’ unique Educational Day Services enables them to fulfil in the most creative sense their core values of: People, Passion and Partnership.

Bath’s Action on Hearing Loss Projects Coordinator, Andrew Harris says:

“We believe everyone we support has something positive to bring to the world not despite of who they are but because of whom they are. By working in partnership with such great advocate as Art at the Heart we know we can share that passion.”
