Mannequin Appears At Town Museum For New Art Exhibition – This Is Somerset

Enter the sliding doors of Radstock Museum this autumn and you will be greeted by a striking gilt and silver painted mannequin.

Previously part of a Radstock’s community arts project the cast has been given a stylish new look as the face of Radstock and Midsomer Norton-based Old Bakery Artists.

The popular local artists’ group has returned to its geographical roots with an exciting new exhibition at the museum.

The museum’s upper gallery is brimming with colour, playing host to more than 100 paintings, photographs and ceramics created within the Somerset area.

Some of the works take inspiration from the area’s mining past, depicting scenes underground, whilst others show local scenes including The Bell Inn, Radstock, Paulton and, further afield, Wells Cathedral and Wellow Village.

The exhibition runs until Sunday, November 30 and is open between 11am and 5pm on Saturdays.
