Sanctuary Artists Exhibition

Tue 4 June at 10:00 am until 5:00 pm

All the artists in this exhibition have one thing in common; they have all sought sanctuary in Somerset to escape war, persecution or political unrest.

Some have been granted refugee status by the UK government and are building new lives here; others are asylum seekers waiting to hear whether they will be allowed to stay in the UK. They are from more than six countries.

SANCTUARY Artists is an eclectic mix of experience and styles. There are professional artists who lectured in art in their home countries, and others who had not picked up a paintbrush until very recently.

The artists regularly attend groups hosted by CHARIS Refugees. These are non-judgmental spaces where they are free to express themselves using colour, shape and form, and where they are able to rediscover a sense of self through individual journeys in paint.

Find out more about the artists here.

The Sanctuary Artists exhibition is open from 10am-4pm daily. Entry is included in general admission to Bath Abbey.

Bath Abbey is a working church and visiting hours Please check the Abbey’s opening hours here.
