The Best of Buckinghamshire’s Artists are coming to Beaconsfield for their annual Open exhibition.
The 2023 BAS Spring Open Exhibition will be held at the Fitzwilliams Centre, Windsor End, Beaconsfield HP9 2JW from Saturday 29th April 2023 to Monday 1st May 2023. The exhibition will be open daily from 10.00am to 5.00pm. The Preview Evening will take place on Friday 28th April 2023 from 6.30pm to 9.00pm.
All Buckinghamshire Artists are invited to submit.
The featured artist is the very talented Amanda Curbishley. Amanda is fascinated by the effects of light, by texture and natural forms, by shape and colour in nature and she tries to reflect these in her work. By using acrylic and mixed media she incorporates bright colours and textures into her paintings. Although subjects can be varied, her favourite subject to paint is the sea and more recently pebbles and rivers. Like most people she feels connected to, and fascinated by, the sea and water in general. She is a member of BAS, the Oxford Art Society and NAPA and has exhibited extensively in Bucks and in London. She teaches a regular art class and her work can be seen on her website www.curbiart.co.uk and Social Media.
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 90 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 based on 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, which is open and non-members can submit their work.
Antonia Glynne Jones, Publicity Officer of BAS, said: ‘We strive to maintain a rigorous selection process for entry into the Society. 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.‘
