I’ve been an exhibition enthusiast for most of my life. One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday morning is comb through Bath Life magazine while sipping my tea, a pen at the ready to highlight any exhibitions or events I want to book into my diary. Bath, Bristol or London, wherever rich and beautiful art is displayed I am always in tow, like a moth to a flame.
I am also a true believer that art is a road from our past, frozen moments in time that we can look to for guidance, or perhaps a little reassurance that some things never change. They can bring moments of powerful emotion to the viewer, but also those of calm and clarity too.
When working with the public, one of my favourite moments in my hectic day was telling a visitor or busy Bath resident, about the newest exhibition at the Holburne or how on a Friday night the torches are lit at the Roman Bath’s. The elation and interest it so often brought them was a true tonic, so on Sibella Shares, I can do the very same with you. I’ve done all the research and am often the first into an exhibition, so read away and see which arty event takes your fancy.
