POSTPONED – A celebration of American Folk Art
Mon 21 November, 2022 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Monday 21 November, 10am – this talk has been POSTPONED and a new date will be announced soon.
Please join us for wine & soft drinks from 7pm!
American Museum and Gardens founder Dallas Pratt had a personal love of folk art – everyday art made by artists without formal academic training. It is unsurprising that when he and John Judkyn created the museum in Bath they included a large and unique collection of American folk art: paintings, sculptures, textiles, shop signs and weathervanes.
Kate Hebert, Chief Curator and Jan English, Collections and Public Engagement Director, will be showcasing this fascinating collection including works from well-known artists such as Grandma Moses. Join us as we celebrate this joyful artwork of the people, for the people.

Talk POSTPONED – we will announce a new date as soon as possible.
