This year 2013 it will be sixty years since Joy Barnes who recently celebrated her 100th birthday, started the society.  She has agreed to be interviewed and her story is now on the site.

Many other members may also have pictures to share and stories to tell about the activities and members of the society.  We need to illustrate these where possibe with photos of 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..
