Fresh Arts@ the fringe
Artwork created as part of
this year's Fresh Arts@ project is to be exhibited at the Fringe Arts Festival in
This exhibition will showcase new, original and stimulating
artwork that has been created by people who have been affected by
mental health. The artwork is inspired by workshops held in the
Holburne Museum, No 1 Royal Crescent, The American Museum &
Sycamore Ward, Hillview Lodge, and run in partnership with
Creativity Works, Sirona & Bath Museums.
The project this year has so far produced 30 pieces of artwork
which, after the festival, will be displayed on the walls of Bath
You can see the Fresh Art@ exhibition at Bath Artists Studio,
The Old Malthouse, Comfortable Place, Bath BA1 3AJ from 22 May - 6
June, 11am - 4pm. Entrance is free.

It resulted in more than 60 pieces of art work being produced,
which now adorn the walls of Sycamore Ward and other areas at
Hillview Lodge. This year we hope the project will be just as
successful and we look forward to seeing the new artwork at the
