* Workshops * Exhibitions * Coach Trips * Painting Days
We are at last beginning to hear some good news about Covid19. It seems that, one way or another,
a vaccine is imminent and that we may well be able to return to some kind of normality during 2021.
Encouraged by this, we have decided to go ahead with a full series of events in our annual programme.
Hopefully most, if not all of them, will be able to be carried out as physical events. A large number of
the workshops and lectures we have arranged are rescheduled from last year, when they sadly had to
be cancelled. We are most grateful to all the tutors and lecturers involved who have agreed to make
their services available to us again this year.
We are also looking forward to holding our annual exhibition once again at Kings School Bruton in
August. It should provide a great opportunity too for us to enjoy some of the excellent work that has
been produced by members during lockdown! We are also planning to provide an online presence for
the show, following the highly successful online exhibition that we staged in 2020.
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and successful New Year.
Will Vaughan, Chairman
Bruton Art Society - The Committee in Lockdown
It’s been ‘business as usual’ for the BAS Committee!
All meetings held since March have been via Zoom
and of course the Exhibition went ahead online thanks
to Exhibition Curator Sue Hardy. Unfortunately most
workshops had to be cancelled but Jane Barnard added
some extra Painting Days to ll the gaps. We hope that
next year will see a return to Hadspen for some exciting
workshops arranged by Alexandra Drysdale who now
steps down as Workshop Organiser. Also leaving the
Committee is Sarah Hall who has been our Bookings
Ofcer. Both will be greatly missed!
