Next month, the Bath Artisans will hold their indoor Fall Art Show. A diverse mix of mediums and styles from 21 artists will be available to purchase at St. John’s Hall in Bath on November 5 and 6, 2022.
According to a release from the organization, the Bath Artisans was founded by a group of local artists in 1990. Their first show was held in June 1991, and they have held at least three shows per year since then. Two of the founding members, Trudy Carkner and Donna Robinson, are still with the group and will be at this year’s Fall Art Show.
“From the beginning, the Bath Artisans have been all-inclusive and encouraging, with a focus to help all members find their passion for creating art for the joy it gives them,” Bath Artisans said in the release, noting that the people who’ve joined their collective have done “many fun things together,” and they’ve all learned from the different talents that each member brought to the group.
The group is still “flourishing and growing” 31 years later, and, according to the organization, the original intent of inclusiveness and encouragement remains the central theme of the organization.
The show will be held over the weekend of November 5 and 6, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at St. John’s Hall, located at 212 Church Street in Bath (Loyalist Township).
Over the years, artists and artisans of many diverse talents have come and gone, organizers shared, noting that many members have been part of the group for 10 years or more. Bath Artisans now has 40 members, with an eclectic mix of skills and talents. Although the majority of the members are painters, Bath Artisans shared that their artisans work in many mediums, including wood turning, precious stones, fabric wall art, sculpture, photography, and handmade cards.
