Let’s all go to Venice!

Bath’s Holburne Museum has a big celebration week-end coming up.

Not only is it ten years since the Grade 1 listed building reopened – after a major refit which included adding its amazing glass and ceramic extension – but it’s coming out of lockdown on Monday – and throwing open its doors to the public again.

While we’ve been unable to holiday abroad for a while, the new exhibition filling the top gallery will be able to whisk us all away to Italy – at least in spirit.

Here’s Museum Director, Chris Stephens to tell us more.

Guess who l bumped into outside the gates of the Holburne this morning.

Our very own ‘Pete the Street’ – aka Peter Brown – a Bath-based artist, all-weather painter of street scenes and city landscapes and frequent exhibitor at the Victoria Art Gallery – at the other end of Great Pulteney Street.

Unlike Canaletto, the sun doesn’t always shine in Pete’s paintings. If it rains or snows he’ll paint that too!
