Peter Brown: Bath Is It


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

This exhibition features over 100 new oil paintings and drawings by the ever popular Bath-based artist ‘Pete the Street’. The exhibits celebrate the streets and green places of Bath as well as far-flung places where his easel has taken him. Having exhibited at the Gallery on a number of occasions we are delighted to welcome the return of this much-loved local artist.

The works of art include scenes of well-loved Bath locations such as Widcombe, Hedgemead Park, Lansdown and Milsom Street, as well as lesser-known but equally beautiful corners of the city. These atmospheric views are captured in different states – quiet and bustling – and in all weathers, even during rain and snow. The artist insists on using the street as his studio and incorporates passers-by into his work.

Despite being in demand globally, Peter never tires of painting his home city. He came to Bath in 1986 to study for a foundation course in art. He then continued his training in Manchester and Greenwich before returning to Bath in 1993. A fully illustrated catalogue will be available and most works will be for sale.
