Fourteen BAS members signed up for this extremely enjoyable workshop.
Alex lead the group with enthusiasm reminding them of drawing basics & how important they are to practice.
Remarks from the group:
“Some very interesting work ..felt stretched & stimulated”
“..put through my paces..made to think what is meant by “Drawing”..”
“..it was an eye opener to most of us”
“Without the guidance and enthusiasm of the tutor I doubt whether we would have been so adventurous.”
“…always good to go back to basics and pick up extra techniques and tips from an expert…”
Member Corinna Leigh Turner will be hosting an Exhibition of Matthew Franklin’s work on 21st & 22nd September 10 – 4 at Knowle Rock, Shepton Montague, Wincanton, Somerset. BA9 8JA

We are sorry to have to announce that our President, Mrs. Joy Barnes, died on Tuesday 27th August. She was 106.
Joy Barnes was the founder of the Bruton Art Society, in 1953. Since that time she has been deeply committed to the society, serving first as Chair and then as President. She played a central and fully active role in our society until, at the age of 100, she had to retire to a nursing home. She retained a keen interest in the Society until the end, and it was her wish that any donations made on the occasion of her funeral should go to the Bruton Art Society. The Society will ensure that any contributions made will be put to a charitable purpose connected to the fine arts. Continue reading Death of Joy Barnes Our Founder and President

Members enjoyed the day & we’d really recommend a visit.
The Society has just opened an Instagram account and we’ve made a good start with 120 followers within 2 weeks!
We’ve been showing images from our exhibitions and are linking up with many other artists in the region.
Quite a few of our members enjoy using Instagram.
For those who don’t know – Instagram allows artists to get their work seen if they want to share it, but they can also enjoy the work of many other artists – locally, nationally & internationally.
