Spotlight 3: Modern & Contemporary Art from the Collection of Chippenham Museum

This exhi­bi­tion is the third in Chip­pen­ham Museum’s Spot­light series ded­i­cat­ed to its grow­ing Mod­ern and Con­tem­po­rary Art Collection.

This exhibition is the third in Chippenham Museum’s Spotlight series dedicated to its growing Modern and Contemporary Art Collection.

The project began in 2019 with the desire to celebrate the rich artistic history of this part of North Wiltshire. As a permanent collection, it acts as a source of inspiration, education and enjoyment for all.

At the heart of the Modern and Contemporary Art Collection are works that acknowledge the legacy of the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham, a pioneering residential art school that counted some of the biggest names in modern and contemporary art amongst its teachers and students.

North Wiltshire’s creativity proudly extends beyond the Academy, and the collection records and celebrates the many contemporary artists who continue to live and work in this area today.

Further details about the artworks can also be found in the accompanying catalogue available in the museum shop.

Open Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm
