A number of our members are participating in Somerset Art Weeks which starts on 16th September and runs until 1st October. If you are thinking of visiting some of the venues consider having a look at some BAS members’ studios. There is a list in the “Members Events” section specially dedicated to their efforts.
As the dust settles on our 70th Annual Exhibition, we can all reflect on a job very well done. The show received almost unanimous praise, but of course none of it would have happened without the effort of a lot of people, from the high quality submissions of over 150 members to the crowd of volunteers who helped to hang and man the event. Thanks are also due to our loyal sponsors and to the entire committee for months of careful planning, but one person in particular should be mentioned for her unstinting efforts (for a second year) and that is Sally Ridout, our curator.
The 70th Anniversary Annual Show got under way last night with a lively private view at Kings Bruton Memorial Hall. The show is open from 10am – 4pm everyday until 26th August. With nearly four hundred pieces of work from over a hundred artists there is something to suit everybody’s taste and budget.
If you have submitted your work for inclusion in this years exhibition, you can now check to see whether you have been successful. Go to https://brutonartsociety.oess1.uk and login to see the results.
We will receive pre-selected work at the Hall on the 12th August and a time period in which to deliver your work will be emailed to you soon, together with a reminder of the regulations regarding framing and labelling .
Information about entering work for browsers and cards will also be included.
