About

More than thirty artists open their studio doors or create a pop-up exhibition at this year's popular Bear Flat Artists Arts Trail. A free event, it takes place over the weekend of 21st and 22nd May, 11am to 6pm daily. Discover a hive of creativity all within walking distance of each other, and just ten minutes from Bath city centre. Visitors can expect to see a dynamic mix of painting, ceramics, jewellery, printmaking, photography, wood turning, glass, illustration, upholstery, and other media.… The weekend is a chance to meet the artists in their place of work, find out about the many processes involved, and browse or buy original artwork direct in a relaxed setting.

Artists taking part this year include ceramicists Kate Marshall and Esther Norman in Shelley Road. Nearby is photography by Pey Oh with watercolours by Bea Colborne. Down to Shakespeare Avenue for the work of two abstract artists, Maggie Simonsen and Lindy Dickins. On Chaucer Avenue Ben Hughes shows his oil paintings.

There are four venues in Longfellow Avenue. At the top is printmaker James Nunn, then along to see photographer Helena Miscioscia and illustrator Simon Gardner. Lower down is ceramicist Claire Hubble who hosts illustrator Sammy Hayward and ceramicist Josie Phillips. Nearby is photographer James Fox, and ceramicist Yvonne Elston and jeweller Karen Parker. Opposite is painter Jason Forster.
Head up the Wellsway for Catherine Day's ceramics studio and along Greenway Lane to find Matt Roberts photography. A little further afield is painter Jonny Verrell at the top of Bloomfield Road.
Then, head down to Hensley Road for Tamara Penwell's iconography and on to Bloomfield Road for Sally Pollitzer's prints and paintings (Sunday only). Through the park to Maple Gardens to see Suzanne Baginski's fused glass and Catherine Coffin's jewellery. Nearby in Bloomfield Avenue is wood turning by Roly Prosser.
Walking back to the Wellsway, find upholstery at Julia Davey's interiors shop. Newly refurbished, The Bear Inn hosts Richard Gardiner's paintings. The Methodist Church Hall displays work by local amateur artists, Circle Art Group.
A short walk down to Upper Oldfield Road for lino cuts by Robina Clifford, mixed media by Emma Ayes and photography by Nick Miners. Lower Oldfield Road brings visitors to see paintings by Kristine O'Connor and glass by KT Black.
