To see some of the greatest artists currently in the South West whilst staying in a b and b in Bath, look no further than the 2012 Holburne Portrait Prize.
The biennial competition sees artistically skilled competitors submit portraits that will be displayed from 22nd September-14th October at the Roper Gallery in the Holburne Museum.
The quality of the paintings impresses the judges year on year, so it’s no wonder that the prize is a considerably large one at £5,000. Expect a variety of painting styles that show off the talents of the region’s artists in a competition that is gaining an enthusiastic and growing audience each year.
As well as the monetary prize, one lucky artist will win The People’s Prize which is voted for by visitors. Why not head to The Holburne Museum whilst enjoying spa breaks in Bath and vote for your favourite portrait? Entrance is £5 from 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday, 11am-5pm on Sundays.
