exhibitions by BVA members
The BVA holds a series of exhibitions every year.
The major event is in June, this year Open Studios 2017 features 30 artists with studios open over 2 weekends and a Group Show at the Willow, Oswestry.
We usually have a themed group show in both the spring and autumn.
The BVA has a dedicated exhibition space in Oswestry Library.
So there is always some BVA members work on display there.
1, 2 or 3 members hold personal shows starting on the first Monday of each month
Our more active members participate in group shows and solo exhibitions further afield.
In 2017 this included Chelsea Flower Show, Willow Gallery, Oswestry, Y Capel, Llangollen.

To Frame or not to Frame
Oswestry Visitor and Exhibition Centre Shropshire
Today artists are enjoying a period of maximum choice and experimentation. Liz Mellor and Diana Baur do not usually frame their works unless they are prints, but in this exhibition both artists are displaying some framed works. Liz Mellor usually leaves larger works unframed quite specifically in order to invite the viewer to become part of the work. Diana recently specifically chose to start a body of work giving a new life to vintage and rescued frames. She has either allowed for, or deliberately worked with the demands of these frames.
