Highbridge & Burnham Artists

Bringing art to the community

Exciting New Project

HaBA artists are working on an exciting new project which will be launched on the first bank holiday of the year in May, the art group are working in partnership with the Petals charity to create 30 mini replicas of Burnhams iconic lighthouse each lighthouse stands approximately 6 ft tall and will be painted by a different artist, each artist has chosen the design for their lighthouse, designs range from horses running through the ocean, wild life, cherubs and carnival to name but a few. The lighthouses will be displayed around the town from late May until September when they will be auctioned. A trail will be available for all to take part in and a launch party is scheduled for May 3rd at the lighthouse Pub. Further details will be available shortly.

Geraldine Boley one of HaBAs artists is taking the local area through the seasons as her inspiration  ‘Spring’ with a cormorant and adult swan.
‘Summer ‘ is a view of Brean down with goats, winter is a work in progress with two views of the river bank, one looking over to the boat and the second will  be looking back towards the pits with a terrier in the foreground snow.
