A note regarding some of our proposed 2021 exhibitions

Unfortunately due to the covid restrictions and lockdown the Diversity, Treasured Fragments and Dialogues exhibitions in August and September have been cancelled.  All these exhibitions feature artists who are caught up in the Greater Sydney area.  We look forward to seeing these exhibitions at the BDAS in 2022 and feel the disappointment that comes from having to postpone them yet again.
