31st March - 12th July 2017


This exciting and diverse collection of works celebrates some of Bath’s industrial history and honours the labour force that enabled this industry; highlighting the conditions they lived and worked in and contrasting it with the sectors of the city where there was freedom of choice and money to spend.

It promises to be a thought provoking but vibrant display in the Central Gallery. The show includes 3d work, stills from a video, and a link to an especially composed piece of music as well as photography, painting and print.

 Pig for Swill Toad illustration

5th May - 12th July 2017

15 illustrators will be showing their work at The RUH as part of Art at the Heart’s award winning art and design programme.  The illustrators are exhibiting work in a wide variety of styles, including:

  • Illustrations for Children's Books 
  • Stamp Design
  • Magazine and Advertising
  • Greetings Cards
  • Print Making
  • Street Artworks (including the resin Pigs that populated Bath in 2008).

South West Illustrators is a group of illustration artists based in the South West, mostly from the Bath and Bristol area.  The group celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, having been set up in the olden days, when everything was still largely in black and white and people used fax machines.

The purpose of the group was to bring illustrators together, to share their ideas, give advice, discuss techniques, pass on information, and just to see a face and hear a voice!  -  it could be quite a lonely and isolated existence before the invention of the internet and all its myriad ways of communicating and keeping in touch.

Donations received by the art charity go directly into maintaining and continuing the broad range of award winning arts projects on offer at the hospital.
