GAWP! @ THIS; graduate exhibition occupying an empty shop.
Do you want to smell a perfume that has been formulated to attract spirits and ghosts to the wearer as an aid to creativity?
Do you want to have a go at making paper? Do you want free toast? Do you want to know how to make an orchestra out of pens and pencils? Do you want to see art made of cereal!?
Then GAWP! at our pop-up exhibition in Kings Square on Saturday 23rd. For one day only these art pieces, along with lots more fun and interactive works made by recent graduates from Bath, Bristol and Gloucester, will be available to view free of charge from 10am-4pm. Don't expect quiet spaces and white walls....
Come speak to the artists, have a play, get involved or just have a GAWP. We can't wait to see you!'

Local Motion Project,
'Ffordd Umlaen' 22nd Feburary
"Ffordd Ymlaen (Streets Ahead) will bring together groups, individuals, mental health organisations, local artists and creative minds to create a vibrant, forward-looking street. The aim is to create a diverse community of all ages, ethnicities, languages, business owners, community volunteers and schools, who will build pride in the area and use creativity to make King Street cleaner, greener, resilient, and better connected. The group envisage transforming the area through artwork and decorations, while regaining a sense of place by emphasising its unique culture and history, developing King Street’s ‘unique selling point’ as an ‘independent treasure trove of culture, legends, and myths’." - https://localmotion.org.uk/projects/

Solastalgia pop up Exhibition. 2023
As apart of the first issue of the Solastalgia zine created by Summer Auty, We were invited by Black Swan arts gallery in Frome to do a pop up exhibition with the work featured in the issue.
The work featured in the show speaks to both climate grief and the celebration of our natural world; the collective experience of loss and finding hope.
The first issue of the zine's profits goes towards a fundraiser for the Edventure start-up project in Frome.

The Fledgling Residency. Caro Somerset.
2nd-9th of October 2022
"Caro is delighted to introduce Fledgling, a programme that gives rise and attention to new artists and designers, exploring our call to observe and reflect alongside our passion for an education that cultivates creative thinking.
The annual exhibition will feature work across a variety of disciplines including sculpture, ceramics, textile and painting, either collectively or partly. Each artist in residence will present their work with a show at The Space at Caro, a place for creativity and connection."
My practice has always been a tool that I use to understand my place in the world. Often exploring a state of fragmented belonging and wishing for a shift in our relationship with the natural.
As an artist resident on the Fledgling programme at Caro, I am presented with an opportunity to collaborate and connect with nature. I will create a sculpture using entirely foraged materials, whilst listening to the sounds of the land. The hope is to quietly watch and listen to what it's trying to teach me. To translate what I learn into a form. As with everything in life, the sculpture will have a temporary existence. After being allowed to play and explore with the clay, I will give back to the earth what was borrowed.
