A four-day exhibition at 44AD Art Gallery will showcase the creative talents of students studying part-time Love2learn courses at Bath College.
Titled Palette, the exhibition is inspired by the broad ranges of courses on offer at the college and will include work from a wide variety of artistic disciplines.
The gallery, at Abbey Street Bath, will be filled with fine art paintings, photographs, jewellery, prints and sculptures from March 29th to April 1st.
Work on display will be available for sale, giving people an opportunity to purchase work from emerging and established artists.

Jo Sanders, Deputy Head of Art & Design is curating the exhibition and students from Bath College will be volunteering as guides over the four days.
She said: “There’s always a really high standard of work for the exhibition. Tutors have been collecting work from students over the past couple of months, so there’s a real sense of excitement about the opening.
“Our Love2learn art courses are very popular and there’s a really busy atmosphere in the evenings, with students coming in to learn and perfect their skills.

“We have a new photography intermediate course for students who completed our beginners course and our ceramics courses are booming – I think people have been inspired by the BBC’s Great Pottery Throw Down.
“Some people might not be aware of this side of the college, and it’s really nice for the students to come together to show their work.
“Katie O’Brien is the project director at 44AD and teaches on our curatorship and studio painting courses. We’re really pleased to be working with her to use 44AD as an exhibition space.”
For some students, the exhibition will be the first opportunity they’ve had to exhibit their work. Prizes will be handed out, including £100 worth of vouchers for the Love2learn student of the year.
An open evening will be held at 44AD on Friday March 31st from 6pm to 8pm and all are welcome to visit. The exhibition will be open from Wednesday March 29th to Saturday April 1st between 11am to 4pm.
