May's Monthly Meeting

What an evening! Inspirational, challenging, entertaining, hilarious, and the fancy was tickled. Greg D'Souza was all that a Welsh speaker should be - charming, erudite, holding his audience enthralled, and enabling everyone to be active participants. We went home with smiling faces and an added twinkle in our eyes. How many of us will now use imagination in our creations? How many will submit imaginative works for our next exhibition? Wait and see...

S T E W A R D I N G - A Plaintive Cry

The BAS Committee are sure that members consider it a reasonable expectation that all exhibitors will agree to serve as stewards at some time during any exhibition in which they are taking part. It has to be said that some members are very elusive when the rotas are being agreed which is very unfair on a few others who find themselves doing multiple stints. At the current show at Ewell one committee member has had to do seven sessions. Please be more forthcoming in the future.

Coxcombe Fair

Just a quick addendum to my last blog, my friends at B.A.S. are of course invited to exhibit and will be very welcome


Last Sunday's ARTGREGO studio exhibition

I would like to thank all who supported,  helped and encouraged me to put on at my open studio exhibition. It was a great sucess. I shall, of course, miss the paintings that sold terribly, but look forward to producing more. Happy painting to all.

Coxcombe fair

On June 2nd. the village of Ightham in Kent is holding a fair to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. The village will be closed to traffic and stalls will throng the main street and square. St. Peters church will host an art and crafts exhibition featuring works from local artists including myself, but don't let that put you off as Allan Davies is guesting and I am assured the photography is worth the visit on its own. All are welcome and it would be good to see some of Ripley's friendly faces along with other B.A.S. members that I have yet to meet.

April Demonstration - Oil and Water !

One of the ships painted by our speaker

Our speaker on Friday April 13th is Geoff Hunt, who will give a demonstration of a marine subject in oils. Many of you will have seen his work on the front covers of the popular “Aubrey – Maturin” novels about life in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars.

I really cannot accept late entries.

Exhibition Bourne Hall, Ewell. 1 – 12 May. Call for entries

Our last exhibition at Bourne Hall proved very successful. It is a delightful space, light and airy and set in beautiful grounds. Within the same area as the exhibition is an excellent café and a library and there is a museum upstairs. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. They provide us with a table at which we can sit and paint, making the time there pass very quickly. There is a car park which is not free but the charge last year was very reasonable.
