Alex Nash

is a silkscreen printmaker based in Bath

Alex studied Art as part of her Teacher Training. Her later qualification and experience as a horticulturist and garden designer have strongly influenced her work. 

 

Alex spent two years on an Advanced Visual Studies Course followed by three years studying fine art under Jill Lewin at Wiltshire College. Over the past number of years, she has been attending the Printmaking Workshop in Trowbridge.

 

Over that time she has concentrated on exploring colour and composition using the silkscreen process.

 

Her work has covered the landscapes of Cornwall and North Wales and the architecture of Portmeirion Umbria and Whitstable. Some of her work is purely abstract using bold flat colour.

 

She held her first solo exhibition in Corsham in 2007. 

 

Alex has exhibited at Fisherton Mill in Salisbury, the Westbury Music and Arts Festival, the RUH and 44AD in Bath and the Bath Society of Artists annual exhibition in 2011, 2015, 2016, 2017and 2018.

 

Alex has had her work accepted and hung at the RWA open exhibitions in Bristol, in 2015 ‘Portmeirion 4’, in 2016 ‘Portmeirion 5’ and  ‘The Bathroom Door’ and in 2017 ‘Portmeirion 6’. She was a finalist in the 2018 RA summer exhibition with her print Odysseus' Wrath. 

 

For three years she exhibited and helped run the Time and Space Gallery in Combe Down Bath and was a member of the Time and Space Artists. She is now a member of the Wiltshire Print Creatives.

Alex was an exhibiting artist at Rostra Gallery in Bath before it moved from George Street. 

She has been exhibiting at the Widcombe Art trail since it began in 2007 and in May took part in the Wylye Valley art trail.

For the month of March 2019, she exhibited at Fisherton Mill with the Wiltshire Print Creatives.
