As Allan says, Frames and Art, the excellent framers near the cinema in Bromley are going to sell art materials. They would like to know what our members would like them to sell. They are likely to start with Daler-Rowney plus whatever is in demand. What's your favourite make/product? Favourite watercolour paper? Good lines in pens and pencils? Best brushes? They can't stock everything but as BAS members themselves they would like to respond to your needs - And don't forget, their framing is excellent and if you produce your BAS card you get the discount.

Exhibition

Ken Murray reports that his students have an exhibition at the Framing shop near the cinema in Bromley at the end of this month. The big news is that the shop will be selling art materials! Yippee! The quality of framing is second to none, by the way. I know because I have seen Fabricio's work.

Superb teaching skills and awake students made for another super experience this evening. Gratitude abounds.

Dali

Entertainment in full measure with more than enough about Dali to have us all looking at his works with different eyes (now there's scope for something surreal for us to meditate upon). A wonderful evening and The Slinn presentation of a chap who spent a lot of time painting dusky maidens will be just right for the sixth formers among us. By the way, I spend a lot of time being an eighteen year old! (I am sorry for the earlier typing error.)

Wrotham Arts Festival

It has been and gone! If you missed it, you missed a treat. Derek and I had a great show with some of our pieces now hanging in new homes. In two years time we will be there again for sure, God willing. What about you?

March Demo.

What a wonderful venue! The decision to move to the golf club at Shortlands was absolutely right for us. Thise who were present - and there were a lot of us - thoroughly appreciated all that was on offer; first rate coffee, an bar that stayed open beyond our demo. period, good lighting and comfort. All that, added to the really good use of our sound and vision kit, made for a good evening for all. Even the demo. was good... Next month it is an evening with our friend Hash and his unique use of acrylics. I anticipate another super evening. See you there.

Changes to 2013 Friday Talks Programme

Unfortunately the 2013 talks programme has had to be substantially revised. Both dates and venue have been changed. Please see the updated programme at http://bromleyartsociety.org.uk/programme

Wrotham Arts Festival

 The bi - annual festival at Wrotham is on 10th 11th and 12th of May

 this year,  it would be great to see members of B.A.S.. there.

 Especially now that Ann is no longer our flag bearer.

The Easel

 Thank you Adrian, the biter bit somewhat. Actually my association with

 B.A.S. is becoming more and more tenuous and I am visiting local art

 societies with a view to cutting out all the travelling I have to do each

 wednesday, but, hand on heart it isn't a job I would want to do wether

 I go or stay. It takes me so long to finish a painting at the best of times

 ( which is me making excuses ). The truth is its only when someone

 stands down from a position that the work they did is truely appreciated
