This exhibition features over 100 new oil paintings and drawings by the popular Bath-based artist ‘Pete the Street’.

The exhibits in this show celebrate the streets and green places of Bath as well as far-flung places where Peter Brown’s easel has taken him. The works of art include scenes of well-loved Bath locations such as Widcombe, Hedgemead Park, Lansdown and Milsom Street, as well as lesser-known but equally beautiful corners of the city. These atmospheric views are captured in different states – quiet and bustling – and in all weathers, even during rain and snow. The artist insists on using the street as his studio and incorporates passers-by into his work.

Peter never tires of painting his home city. He came to Bath in 1986 to study for a foundation course in art. He then continued his training in Manchester and Greenwich before returning to Bath in 1993.
