exhibitions by BVA members

The BVA holds a series of exhibitions every year.

The major event is in June, this year Open Studios 2017 features 29 artists with studios open over 2 weekends and a Group Show at the Willow, Oswestry.

We usually have a themed group show in both the spring and autumn.

The BVA has a dedicated exhibition space in Oswestry Library. So there is always some BVA members work on display there.

1, 2 or 3 members hold personal shows starting on the first Monday of each month

Our more active members participate in group shows and solo exhibitions further afield.

In 2017 this included Chelsea Flower Show, Willow Gallery, Oswestry, Y Capel, Llangollen.

“Energy and motion made visible – memories arrested in space”
― Jackson Pollock

This exhibition features the work of three prominent visual artists, all with Wrexham connections through their learning, work and social circles. The exhibition is tour de force of contemporary abstract-expressionist thought where “Energy & Motion” become reality through the interpretation of the painters.
