Bath Fine Art is delighted to be hosting an art exhibition for the Genesis Trust, a local charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people in Bath. The trust helps put peoples lives back on track by offering a valuable support network in the community and practical help. This includes a weekly art class which gives time and space to experiment and be creative without pressure, and which has uncovered some genuinely exciting new talent.

Genesis Trusts support worker and artist, Karen Burnett, has long held an ambition to display the work of Genesis clients alongside that of established artists in a professional gallery space. Not only will this give the artists a sense of self worth and achievement, it will raise much needed funds for the charity to continue their valuable projects within the community.

Bath Fine Art is now helping make this dream a reality by hosting the exhibition. Gallery Director, Rebecca Phillips, first met Karen at a similar arts event last year. She says I was very impressed by the quality and standard of work and we were delighted to be asked to host this exhibition for the Genesis Trust. We are always keen to offer local support and felt this was a special opportunity to promote the work of local artists, giving them a chance to exhibit their art to a wider audience and for a good cause.

The exhibition will include around 40 artworks in oils, acrylic, mixed media, watercolours, pastel, pen, ink and photography. Prices will range from 50 - 500 with proceeds going to the Genesis Trust.
