Painting Aardman - Free Exhibit Opens Saturday!

Painting Aardman Exhibit - Holburne Museum, Bath, 7th June – 6th July

Are you interested in art and a fan of Aardman Animations? Then you might be interested in a new exhibition opening in Bath this weekend....

Painting Aardman
In 2006 Vincent Brown won the Holburne Dukes Portrait Prize and was rewarded with a commission to paint someone connected to arts in the South West. He chose to paint co-founders of Aardman Animations, Peter Lord and David Sproxton, along with Nick Park, creator and director of Wallace & Gromit.

The exhibition will explore the development of the portrait from initial studies to finished work. Additionally, there will also be pieces from the Aardman archive on display, together with material describing the company’s history and own creative process.

Entrance is free, so if you are in the area go and check it out! For more information please visit
