Opportunity: A New Portrait for Bath – Holburne Museum seeks six artists

The Holburne Museum is looking for six local artists as part of a funded project inspired by a Thomas Lawrence study. Each artist will create a piece of work in response to 6th form students at an allocated school. The artists will make one visit to the school where they will use the painting to initiate discussion with the pupils on their feelings about leaving school. The artist will then create a piece of artwork in response to the pupils, which will be displayed in the Brownsword Gallery at the Holburne Museum in June 2017. Artists will be offered a training session at the Museum and will be provided with a high quality reproduction of the painting to use during their school visit and throughout the duration of the project. Artists working in any media will be considered.
