Works by Val Hunt

Endangered and Extinct


The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill, artist Val Hunt has created a fascinating selection of large and small sculptural pieces which are both appealing and informative.

Animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora, all on the edge or now extinct, have been made from a selection of throwaway material, especially Val’s favourite medium, drinks can metal.

This exhibition presents a subtle message about recycling and preservation, raising awareness of why the creatures on show are endangered or extinct. Most works are available for purchase.

Free lunchtime talks

A series of free lunchtime talks will take place at The Guildhall in Bath to complement the exhibition. Talks will run from 1.10pm-1.45pm. No need to book, just drop in.
