COLOURSCAPE 2012 “Sponsoring Colourscape at the Holburne provided us with an opportunity to host our first real client 'family' event. It is fair to say we were a li*le daunted but the staff were excellent and ensured every last detail was "just right". The event definitely had the wow factor and the feedback from our guests could not have been be*er. We will definitely do more events like this in the future.”

Joseph Wright of Derby Bath and Beyond 25 January —5 May 2014 Joseph Wright is one of the most important and most fascinang arsts of the eighteenth-century. The exhibion explores Wright’s me in Bath, following his visit to Italy, as a turning-point that sheds light on his whole career. Building on the success of his earlier ‘fire-pieces’, living in Bath’s Brock Street he began to experiment with the effect of moonlight and fire on the landscape, rather than on figures in interiors. His exploraon of the sublime in landscape, is matched by an interest in melancholy in contemporary literature that may be related to his own Mr & Mrs Thomas Coltman, Oil on canvas, deteriorang health. c.1770-2, Joseph Wright of Derby © The Naonal Gallery, London

LIGHT TO LIGHT LIGHTS IN THE GARDENS 2013 Following the internaonally renowned Field of Light shown in the Museum’s Gardens in 2011 we have now established an annual light installaon. In 2013 the Museum is thrilled to be working with the Olympic lighng designer and arst, Patrick Woodroffe. Patrick is creang Light To Light a site specific installaon that will be a perfectly symmetrical grid of theatrical LED lights laid out in the Museum’s Gardens. Circuit: Light Labyrinth 2012 Marn Richman

Each light is an individual element that can change colour and intensity, but together the 99 lights create a rich and layered bed of light that ripples and dances to an invisible sound track. The sound track, by composer MaG Clifford, will be played via ‘silent disco’ headphones. "Light is the medium I have used in my work for over forty years and is something I am constantly aware of in all its beauful and diverse forms. O;en the lighng we use is a reflecon of some sort of performance - theatre, dance, music and ceremony - but here the light takes on the role of the performer in isolaon. The gardens at the Holburne Museum are the perfect site for this celebraon of light and colour" Patrick Woodroffe SPONSORSHIP
