Since opening the gates at Court Robert Arts in the Spring of 2017, there has been plenty of development at this Monmouthshire-based Sculpture Exhibitor. We're in the process of producing a pottery studio, as well as having converted farming outbuildings into lovely new studios.
And guess what? The excitement doesn't end there! We're currently producing our teaching syllabus for Spring 2018, beginning in April. Our purpose-built teaching studios are recently completed, and we're just making those final touches to our art classes before releasing our confirmed dates.
We'll also be encouraging other artists to tutor short-courses with us, so get in touch if you too want to impart some of your wisdom! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07763 485638.
Delighted? Us too! Watch this space and check out our facebook page for updates on when you can sign up.
Believe it or not, Valentine's Day is here next week! (We know, wasn't it just Christmas?)
If your loved one is more of a garden addict than chocolate lover, treat them to one of our beautiful garden sculptures. From the elegance of the Sunworshipper to the simple Sitting Cats, we're bound to have something to delight this Valentine's Day. Or if you're looking for something on a smaller scale, our little Smug Cats are perfect for those who adore their feline friends!
You can buy online, or call us on 01291 691186 to place an order. We look forward to hearing from you!
Resident Artist at Court Robert, Christine Baxter, has had her work incorporated into the new Wellness Suite at the prestigious Thermae Bath Spa. Encapsulating the Roman history of Bath, the Wellness Suite is a Roman-inspired Steam Room. Hand-crafted to match the colour of the stone blocks and the wall design, Christine provided six sculptures in total. She says, “the design was a joint effort” by herself and her partner, Alex Brown. They each wanted to capture the essence of a “strong but benign” lion, which works very well in the dramatic lighting of the Wellness Suite!
Earlier this week, Christine was invited to take photographs of the sculptures in situ at the Wellness Suite. Although, she did have quite the early start to get the photos taken prior to 8am before guests arrived at the steam room (which would have played havoc with the photgraphs)! Christine notes how the lion masks work extremely well in the Suite, alongside a marvelous mosaic of Minerva. Christine told us how “tasteful and relaxing” it all is, and how pleased she is that guests will be spending some of their spa experience looking at her work.
Want to see more of Christine’s sculptures? Visit Court Robert Arts in Raglan where her work can be seen displayed in the courtyard, alongside other artists’ work.
Christine Baxter and Alex Brown are the artists in residence here at Court Robert Arts. From everyday goings-on to new pieces of work, its all here. Alex is a painter and Christine a sculptor.
