Fresh Art@ participants inspired by Kaffe Fassett

Fresh Art@ update from Tasha Beesley, our Fresh Art@ Worker…

Time has flown by and we are now at our third and final venue, the glorious American Museum and Gardens.  Last week was our first week here and the room was quickly filled with creative activity and concentration!  We excitedly went to visit and absorb the Kaffe Fassett exhibition – an impressive collection of extremely colourful and detailed patterned quilts.

Some of us became inspired by the geometric patterns and were encouraged to explore this through printmaking and drawing, others continued to work on ongoing projects carrying on from the previous museums… with an added injection of extra colour!

It has been fascinating to see the many different directions the group have ventured into with their process and ideas, from watercolour and pastels to origami and block printing.  We will be here at the American Museum for a further 3 weeks working on our creations, which will be revealed to the public on Friday 24th May at The Roper Gallery, Bath Artist’s Studios. We hope you’ll come along to see the amazing array of work that’s been created as part of this year’s project.

Join us to Create Everyday!

We will also be hosting FREE creative workshops every day during the exhibition, offering a chance to explore creative process and open a discussion around creativity and wellbeing. Full schedule and details for booking will be released soon including printmaking, pebble painting, pottery, photography and more.

Fresh Art@ Exhibition will be on at The Roper Gallery, Bath Artists Studios, from 24th – 31st May.
