"Antonio López Garcia - Contemporary Realist"

Antonio López Garcia is a figurative artist almost unknown in the UK yet his work is represented in the Pompidou Centre in
Paris, MOMA New York, the Reina Sofia in Madrid and many
other prestigious museum collections across the world.
The foremost painter and sculptor of the Madrid realists, he trained in Madrid and the city itself has been an enduring subject for him. Some of his cityscapes have taken him
twenty years to complete as he works entirely on site.
This illustrated talk will show work from the surrealist work of the 1950s up to the fierce realism of his later years.

It is with great sadness that the Bath Society of Artists has to announce the death of a new member, Kate Noble. it was an honour to have her as a new member. She was an amazingly energetic, positive and talented artist.

Kate had a rich artistic life, always looking for new challenges. Having originally trained as an orthoptist, in her early 40's she decided to follow her true passion and obtained a fine art degree at The Ruskin School, Oxford. Following this she moved into the world of textiles creating the most wonderful fabrics. Her next challenge was to obtain an MA in film animation at UWE Bristol. However not content to rest on her laurels she went on to take an MA in Fine Art at Bath Spa. She also set up the Wells Contemporary Open four years ago and was responsible for creating a very dynamic international annual exhibition in the South West which has gone from strength to strength.

Throughout her life she suffered from eye problems, undergoing surgery and eventually loosing sight in one eye. From this experience she made a very moving animated film describing the operation, eye surgeons still use this film for training purposes. After this, undaunted, she chose to continue to paint " the world as I see it" creating the most wonderfully strong and unique paintings.

She had been keen to be a member of the Society for some years and was made a member in 2015. She had many friends in the Society who will miss a her deeply.

She died on Friday after suffering a severe stroke two weeks before. Our thoughts go out to her family,
