Alan Kestner

Free entry

Alan Kestner begins with (what he describes as) a ‘jumbled mess of brushstrokes’ and then gradually works area by area resolving the jumble into separate vignettes from his imagination.

Jo Nye - Tin City

Free entry

'Tin City' is the recycled creative brainchild of Bath maker Jo Nye. Her handmade tin shrines, diorama, wall decor items & jewellery pieces are inspired by Jo's love of folk art, interior design, architecture, religious icons and reliquaries and both classical & modern art. These influences are all too apparent throughout her handmade pieces - some more straightforward in approach whilst others have a playful nod to kitsch & underground cultures.
