For the past 114 years, the Bath Society of Artists hold an open exhibition at Victoria Art Gallery, showcasing original artwork from across the region.
From over 1000 entries, ‘FIELDS’ made it through the final selection process and chosen to sit alongside over 300 beautiful pieces of art. The exhibition opened with a private viewing on May 17th and continues until June 29th.

The original piece offers a unique perspective of the expansive Wiltshire countryside. Following a detailed study of large scale agricultural mark making, the piece attempts to celebrate the manmade manipulation of the natural landscape. The entirely hand drawn illustration abstracts familiar rural patterns to create a ‘patchwork-quilt’ of interlocking fields and pastures.
The piece depicts the extraordinary Neolithic Avebury Henge as well as the prehistoric artificial chalk mound Silbury Hill. To the south, the 180 feet high Alton Barnes white horse is captured on the southern slope of Milk Hill.
