Local Heroes: The Holburne Portrait Prize Commissions

We celebrate the wealth of talent in the south west with the unveiling of our most recent commissions by prize-winners David Fisher, who has painted the actress Stephanie Cole and Sally Muir who chose to paint Bill Bailey. These will hang alongside all of our winners to date, shown together for the first time since the prize began in 2002. The heroes of the title include musicians, festival organisers, comedians, actors and of course, Wallace and Gromit.
