The featured artist for the 2018 Autumn exhibition is the ‘late’ Paul Millichip. Paul Millichip, who sadly died earlier in 2018, was a well known artist who lived and worked in Bucks for over thirty years and a selection of his work will be included in the exhibition.
The Buckinghamshire Art Society was founded in 1920. BAS plays an active role in the visual arts in Buckinghamshire, organising exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops and various social events, the majority of which are open to the public. The society maintains close links with the County Museum in Aylesbury.
BAS has around 100 members, a large proportion of whom are professional and semi-professional artists. Representing a wide variety of styles and media, all members are elected to the Society on the basis of their skill as artists. Since its foundation, BAS has organized at least two exhibitions per year, traditionally one in the autumn for members only, and another in spring, to which non-members can also submit their work.
‘We strive to maintain a rigorous selection process for entry into the Society,‘ explains Antonia Glynne Jones, Joint Chair of BAS, ‘This ensures that our exhibitions continue to reflect the very best art Buckinghamshire has to offer. With such a wide range of talent, there really is something for everyone at our show.‘
