PARTNER ORGANISATIONS

No artist – and certainly no arts organisation – is an island and Bath Artists’ Studios is no exception.  Working in partnership is key to the development of a successful and healthy creative scene in any community.  Over the years, we pride ourselves in having built strong relationships with our colleagues in the academic, visual arts and arts and wellbeing sectors.  Such partnerships have led to BAS acting as a venue for community and arts and wellbeing initiatives and to exhibitions and projects raising the profile of locally based artists and forging links to constituencies.  

Our partners include:

Art At The Heart

Through exhibitions at the Royal United Hospital in conjunction with joint fundraising auctions.
