Night Owls of Bath: The Herschels

Mogers Drewett is proud to be a sponsor of the Minerva's Owls of Bath 2018 sculpture trail that is coming to the historic town this summer. 

The Minerva's Owls of Bath 2018 will be the latest public art sculpture trail across the city, taking its inspiration from the Roman Goddess Minerva, to whom the Roman Baths Temple was dedicated in the 1st century AD, and whose animal symbol was the owl of wisdom.

Influenced by the Bath Herschel Museum of Astronomy, the Mogers Drewett owl showcases a beautiful sparkling night sky decorated with silhouettes of astronomers painted by artist, Lois Cordelia.  

About the Artist: Loïs Cordelia

Loïs Cordelia is a versatile artist and illustrator, based at her studio in Ipswich, United Kingdom. She works in diverse styles, including energetic speed-painting, intricate scalpel paper-cutting, and mixed media sculpture. She most often creates her art live in public and welcomes the opportunity to talk with people while she works, inspiring and being inspired. 

She maintains a busy schedule of live art demonstrations, workshops, talks, collaborations, publications, exhibitions, and other events. Her work has been featured in a number of public Wild in Art trails across the UK.
