The Red Brick Building hosts regular art exhibitions by established and emerging artists from the local area and further afield. Our aim is to showcase the wealth of creative talent in Somerset and also to bring in high profile exhibitions from places like London and Bristol, making them accessible to the local community.

We currently run a rolling six week programme of art exhibitions, in a number of multi-functional gallery spaces within the building, including our award-winning restaurant – the Bocabar. Recent exhibitions have included the iconic 60’s sculptor Francis Morland, the British Wildife Photography Awards touring Exhibition, the Blue School A’Level Students, and Stanley Donwood – responsible for Radiohead’s cutting edge graphic design.

The Red Brick Arts Committee is an eclectic group of practising/professional artists and art-appreciators, whose skills include all kinds of fine art, painting illustration, design, fashion and landscape photography, video and audio-visual production.

We welcome approaches from local, national and international artists (including local schools and colleges) working across all media who would like to exhibit here.

 

Current Exhibition…

The British Life Photography Awards

Red Brick Building is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of fabulous photographic winners for the British Life Photography Awards.

Founded in 2014, BLPA recognises and showcases the work of established and emerging photographers, both professional and amateur of all ages, while also highlighting the relevance and importance of photography to raise awareness and inform.

The awards are a unique visual celebration of British life, in all its richness and diversity, creating an enduring visual record of the spirit and essence of our nation and its people at work, play and in the community. Whether an intimate portrait, a poignant moment, or sequence of innovative and illuminating images that tell an important story.

There are ten categories covering everything from street life, rural life, portraiture to Brits on holiday and a special award for the best documentary feature.

Documenting daily life has been a tradition for over a century, so just like the great documentary photographers of the past and present, we want to encourage photographers to elevate the commonplace and familiar into something compelling or fascinating through the craft, creativity and discipline of photography.

So – put the dates in your diary and come in visit. The exhibition will be open everyday 10am-5pm.

This exhibition is free to enter with a suggested donation £3 per person.

Bath Textile Artists exhibit at the Red Brick Building – A Medley for all Seasons

 

This group of ten, who exhibit regularly across the Bath and Bristol area, are showing work which has been shown in previous venues. The members specialise in a range of textile techniques, including hand and machine stitching, batik, weaving and feltmaking.   Anyone who is familiar with contemporary textiles will be impressed by the different styles and treatments, those who are unfamiliar will be amazed by the colour and textures produced by fabric and thread.
