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 29 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.

Elizabeth Cadd
New Designer (One Year In) - Week 1
London, Business Design Centre

group show
Creating joyful and uplifting patterns, artist and designer, Elizabeth Cadd uses her intuitive painting and printmaking techniques to make expressive contemporary prints.
An experimental approach to pattern development, playfulness and a passion for colour are key to her distinctive style. Her painterly, sometimes abstract designs are nearly always inspired by nature and the beauty of the natural world.
Her colourful surface pattern designs are suitable for textiles, interiors and the fashion industry. She will be showcasing her original screen printed artworks, limited edition prints and exclusive textile designs for sale.


New Designers presents the Top 100 new design businesses in the UK at One Year In (formerly One Year On) – a curated showcase of the most promising and intriguing designers, studios and entrepreneurs who have recently launched their own businesses. Visitors can browse and buy original pieces directly from their makers, find out more about their ambitions and commission bespoke works while supporting small design companies.
