This blog aims to share and promote current work and/or exhibitions by ex-students of the dearly departed Bath Academy of Art in Corsham. The college was based in the Wiltshire village for approximately 40 years before finally closing its doors in 1986.
Whether you are currently a full time artist or only get to dabble once in a blue moon why not send us details and images of your latest work and we'll post them here on the blog. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org

I recently recieved an email from Stephanie, a Greek Canadian artist who sent me these striking pictures from her The Faces of Nemesis; InvestigativePainting on the Streets of Athens (2012). The work shows people affected
by the recession and are watercolour portraits done on location on the streets of
Athens, Greece 2012.
Stephanie says "I will be doing similar portraits on London streets in Feb 2013..
(needless to say, the risk of making cliche images of the poor is a danger, but
I try to bypass that with economy of means and unsentimentality)".
After leaving Corsham Stephanie went on to do a MFA in Canada.
