Founded in 1953 by a small group of enthusiastic artists, BAS has now grown to almost 200 members from Bruton, Wincanton, Castle Cary and the surrounding towns villages.
We are a very active society with a full and interesting programme for members which runs throughout the year. Meetings are friendly and informative and are held at various venues in the area.
Our Programme Includes:
- Lectures and talks by specialist speakers
- Coach trips to major international art exhibitions
- Painting Days for members at interesting and beautiful places
- Art workshops and demonstrations given by experienced and inspirational turors
- An annual art exhibition of members work selected by a hanging committee. This will again be held at Bruton School for Girls
Membership is open to both amateur and professional artists working in such media as pencil, watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, printmaking and sculpture.
The society also welcomes those who do not draw or paint but are interested in our programme of lectures, workshops and visits.
The society provides members with space on the website to display a personal gallery of six images together with a link to personal websites. To see these click on MEMBERS.
