The BVA was established in 1999 to provide
an informal network offering support and information to artists
living in and around the Shropshire border town of Oswestry
in the UK.
The group holds regular meetings,
part social part 'talking shop', and
puts on several annual events
BVA members also have solo shows as well as occasional group
exhibitions and every month we hold a small show
in dedicated space at Oswestry Library.
There are currently members working in
disciplines including painting, textiles, sculpture, photography,
woodcarving, glass, pottery and printmaking.
Our members welcome studio visits by members of the
public who have made a prior appointment.
Information is circulated within the group using the members area of this website.
We welcome new members who may apply to join us
, the annual membership fee is £20.
