Artists Show New Works – This Is Somerset

Old Bakery Artists are once again returning to their geographical roots with an exhibition of new works in the upper gallery of Radstock Museum.

After a highly successful show two years ago, the group, which features many mid-Somerset artists, has been asked to return with a variety of contrasting artworks.

The 2D works range from abstract oils to figurative pastels to atmospheric photographs.

Each artist has his or her own particular style, medium and choice of subject matter, from local scenes to flowers and portraiture.

The exhibition is on from this Tuesday until November 30 and is open on Tuesdays to Fridays and Sundays from 2pm to 5pm and Saturdays from 11am to 5pm.

To see the show there is an entry fee to the museum (five years and under and helpers for the disabled go free), which is full of fascinating permanent displays celebrating the lifestyle of the Somerset coal miner and illustrates the vibrant, social, commercial and industrial past of the past 200 years in this area.
