Exhibiting Now

Pots, Prints & Paintings

An exhibition by the BDAS Printmakers

Last day Tuesday 20 October

10am till 4pm

 The BDAS printmakers have responded with a pop up exhibition which will display works featuring prints, ceramics and paintings.


The exhibition showcases work covering most of the techniques involved in printmaking and includes etchings, linocuts, monotypes and solar plate etchings as well as prints which combine several of these techniques.  Members have a wide range of interests and the variety of subject matter reflects this, from realism to abstract impressionism.  Members are very happy to discuss techniques with visitors.

All welcome​

Awash with Colour

An exhibition by the Tuesday morning watercolour group

22 - 27 October

Daily from 10am till 4pm

Awash with colour is presented by a group of artists and classmates who meet every Tuesday morning at the BDAS for conversation, friendship and painting. During the Covid restrictions, we worked from home and shared the work with class members via email.

Come along and see what we have been creating in studio 2 and at home. Share in the special and beautiful qualities that only watercolour can create.








Due to COVID-19 there will be no opening but we would love to see you throughout the exhibition ​
