Bucks Art Society 2019 Spring Exhibition to be held in Beaconsfield from Sat 27th to Sun 28th Apr 2019
The Bucks Art Society (BAS) will be holding their annual 2019 Spring exhibition in Beaconsfield from Saturday 27th to Sunday 28th April 2019.
The exhibition will be held at the The Fitzwilliams Centre, Windsor End, Beaconsfield HP9 2JW with doors open from 10.00am to 5.00pm on both days. Entry to the exhibition is free.
On Friday 26th April 2019 there will be a preview evening, to be opened by Mimi Harker, which runs from 6.30pm to 9.00pm.
The exhibition will have a wide and fabulous selection of paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and ceramics, plus a ‘Free Prize Draw’, bring along an invite (which can be downloaded from the BAS website www.bucksart.co.uk) to the exhibition for a chance to win £100 towards the purchase of a piece of artwork at the show. The prize draw takes place at 1.00pm on the Sunday 28th April 2019.
The featured member artist for the 2019 Spring Exhibition is Liz Meier. Liz uses a range of media and process to create paintings which are richly layered and coloured and which are an expression of her interest in the natural world and her interaction with it. Liz has a degree in Fine Art and has exhibited in numerous shows around the UK and on many occasions at Square Umbrella Gallery at Commercial Square Studios.
For Liz, every mark, every layer has its own value, both for itself and for what it adds to subsequent marks and layers. Liz explains: ‘Each painting is rather like the beginning of a journey on foot, I set out with an idea of direction, but without a real map or plan. I don’t always know where I am going and I let the paint and process dictate the shape and composition of the painting.‘
The Bucks Art Society, which has around 100 members, was founded in 1920 and 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 also maintains close links with the County Museum in Aylesbury.
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.
