Exhibition at Ripley Arts Centre

I attended the venue this evening and was pleasantly surprised. Using only one room limited the number of pieces on display but the show was tastefully hung. There was the usual range of subject matter, medium and quality reflecting BAS policy. The showcase of jewellery and knitting was a delight. There were very few members there - a disappointment. However, it was good to chat with folk. 

Arts cash


This is amazing! The UK central government and local governments should take note, especially Bromley.


Hello, fellow members.

I am alive and well again, so I should be sharing news and views soon.

My visit to the Pastel Society show at the Mall Galleries was stimulating. Being a Friend of the Mall Galleries, I attended the preview but did not stay for the formal opening and prize giving. My choice of best in show at least won a prize; it was the cheese on toast! I hope other members agreed that the use of pastels to generate the glow of the melt was outstanding.

Zsuzsanna Pataki - Acrylic Knife Painting Demo

Following the AGM we had the first demo of the year - a demo entitled Acrylic Knife Painting - this turned out to be a bit misleading as Zsuzsanna used a trowel, a large brush and even the palette to apply paint to a large and vibrant painting of sunrise from the Shard. If you want to see the demo in action go to the facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bromleyartsociety/

The next demo will will be on the 2nd March. 

Facebook Group

A Facebook group has been opened and all members are welcome to join. You do need a facebook account. If you don't have one, and do not want one, we can still share your work on the group from here. Google does index groups there a lot, especially if they are very active.


I have been trying to find members using email addresses, but I'm not having a huge success rate. The group is here https://www.facebook.com/groups/bromleyartsociety/ and per above, you are welcome to join, or just follow.

The Easel November 2017

Please see the attachment for the latest Easel.

Sadly this will be Ailsa's last Easel - she has produced some lovely magazines over the last 4 years. We now need to find a replacement for her for next year. Any member interested please contact me or Ailsa

Adrian Fowle
Chairman, BAS

I'm back!

Hello, fellow artists, Adrian has arranged my access to the Webpage again. I had forgotten and lost my password. So, expect a wee stir at some time.

The SAA has taken over a very good art sales company allowing members to offer work for sale. It is worth checking the SAA web presence for information. Members who register will get their subscription elevated to Gold level. It didn't work for me because I have Platinum membership already, which covers my rare one-man shows.
