GALLERIES SEPTEMBER 11 Watercolour Heaven Started in the late 80s, the Sunday Times Watercolour Prize (12 to 18 September, Mall Galleries) seems, if the distinguished names among this year’s finalists are anything to go by, to be showing few signs of old age. Adrian Berg, June Berry, George Butler, Shanti Panchal, Wladyslaw Mirecki and Nicola Bealing cover a wide range of styles and approaches, while the new, younger names this show invariably turns up, make it something of a yearly watercolour heaven for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Winners of this year’s £18,000 prize money had not been announced as we went to press. Bath Chairs It’s ‘musical chairs’ time in that hotbed of the Bath galleries scene that is Margaret’s Buildings (not far from The Circus) – with Gallery LeFort‘s last show before re-locating to Devon (aiming to re-launch in Spring 2012), of RI painters, closing on 13 September – which is just ten days before Bo Hilton, formerly of the Hilton Young Gallery in Penzance, celebrates the grand opening of his new gallery (hiltonfine art) in the same space. Fast work by any standards and an interesting addition to Bath’s thriving gallery culture, with paintings by his mother Rose, Michael Porter, Simon Casson and Hannah Woodman, among others, making up his first show. Meanwhile, just round the corner in Gay Street, Bath Fine Art has changed its name to Bath Contemporary Art and celebrates the re- branding with Cornish artist Neil Pinkett. Is that it for now?
