Two complementary artists are brought together to explore the sensuality and spirit of the female form. With a strong sense of line, Russian artist Iryna Yermolova creates a delicious tension in her work through her application of the paint whilst Sara Ingleby Mackenzie’s slim, elegant sculptures explore the vitality of the female character with gentle humour.
With a strong bias towards unique ceramics, our mixed exhibition over January and February explores colour, shape and form over function. We introduce Elizabeth Rollins-Scott with her other-worldly ceramic and bronze figures and prints, diminutive wall ceramics by Korean sculptor Myung Nam An, stoneware mythical creatures and the decorative by April Young and a new collection of richly coloured porcelain bowls by Peter Wills. Paul Lemmon returns to the gallery with paintings that explore bright, bold and daring new perspectives and we introduce paintings by three new artists, Marissa Weatherhead, Michael Weller and Claire Wiltsher.

We celebrate our relaunch as bath contemporary commencing with a solo exhibition of paintings by Cornish artist Neil Pinkett. 'To the Edge' begins 10th September.
Introducing the work of two artists new to the gallery, whose work is strongly influenced and inspired by the landscape surrounding each painter, with refreshing and contrasting approaches.
Mike Bernard’s distinctive style makes him one of the country’s most respected contemporary landscape painters, for which he has won many prestigious awards. Born in 1957, he trained at the West Surrey College of Art and Design, followed by postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy Schools. He has exhibited widely in London and throughout the UK, including the Royal Institute of Painters - where he was elected a member in 1997 – the Mall Galleries, the Royal Academy Summer Show and leading galleries nationwide.
Inspired by our desire to understand who we are, we showcase an exciting mix of paintings, fashion photography, and sculpture. Introducing London artist Paul Lemmon whose large-scale seductive canvases capture the colour and culture of city life with a cinematic dynamism. Accompanied by Richard Twose whose edgy yet ethereal paintings are inspired by his successful career in the fashion industry. Brian Denington brings his vibrant and dynamic oil studies of the female figure. Anouk Mercier has been exploring fantastical landscapes encorporating imagery from period etchings and modern fashion iconography. Guest fashion photographer Marko Dutka joins us from 23rd to 27th March with his latest collection, referencing past and present influences. A larger 3D perspective is provided by new sculptures from Sara Ingleby-Mackenzie and Rick Kirby. Expect a few surprises!
This intimate exhibition by Marko Dutka, specially for Bath in Fashion, breaks any boundaries between photography and fine art. For Marko, the lens is as effective a means of capturing the play of light on his subject as a painter would find a brush and palette.
We are proud to celebrate the most talented artists in the West of England. This beautiful and diverse exhibition includes new paintings, ceramics and bronzes that capture the spirit of the artist. Works range from the figurative to abstract, from ethereal landscapes to evocative and tantalising female form.

Also, introducing the works of South West artist Mike Hindle, whose evocative twilight beach scenes contrast brilliantly with his bright and beautiful abstracts.
