Took a walk over Bath’s lovely Halfpenny Bridge this lunchtime to visit Widcombe Social Club – an amazingly active social centre for a socially active and attractive community.
It’s where – throughout July and August – you can view the hand-finished mixed-media creations of Bath artist Jo Nye.
I couldn’t make her Private View this evening (Thursday) so popped over the River Avon in the hope that l might catch her or at least get some pictures of her show.
I was too early for Jo but was able to photograph some of what tonight’s guests will be able to view.
Metal Postcards – an exhibition by Tin City – gives you a wonderful display of her creative mind.
Hand-finished, recycled tin shrines, dioramas, found-object decorative items, and prints are all produced under the ‘Tin City’ banner.
Her work is inspired by a love of folk art, religious icons and reliquaries, music & film, pulp fiction and pin-up art.
Each tin shrine or diorama piece is either unique or part of a limited edition set and can comprise of recycled tin, carefully resourced and hand-prepared acetate imagery, upcycled broken vintage & modern costume jewelry, found objects, and scrap store materials.

The exhibition at Widcombe Social Club runs from 30/6/2022 until 31/8/2022
