A short listing for the Royal Academy Summer Show!!

Jacqui Dodds

makes super prints-

Her blind embossing works are superb, and

Jacqui is regularly invited to show her work in a number of prestigious galleries.

This year Jacqui’s work was short listed for the well known

Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show.

Thousands of artists enter,

so a short listing is a huge achievement, and the Academy have asked her to apply again next year.

We don’t think they are the only people

who love her work.

It encompasses- minimalism, peacefulness, fine craftsmanship, and a stillness, pattern and

strength of statement that is so restful compared to

the rush and tear, multi-coloured glitz and glamour and virtual world of modern life.


will be taking part in the Open Studios event in June this year.

She will be showing work at Bronygarth Studio with Judy Greaves and Diana Baur.

Open Studio Leaflets are available

in most outlets in Oswestry and the surrounding area, and you can find out more on our website:

Our first blog post!

Last night at the May meeting Diana suggested that the BVA website had a blog onto which members could post  wonderful happenings, or, if unable so to do, could email them to Diana and she would post them up. Well Myk has done the first part of this work and this is the trial blog.

Open Studios 2014 is coming up soon and our group show will be in the Willow Gallery again.
