This year 2019 it will be 66 years since Joy Barnes  started the society.  She was interviewed by us in her 100th year (2013).  Joy Barnes Interview 

Many present day members may also have pictures to share and stories to tell about their past activities and past members of the society.  We’d like to illustrate these where possible with photos of those trips, events and pictures of artists and their work. If you have any such material you think would be of interest or would like to write about some aspect of BAS history we would be delighted to hear from you..
