Bath Society of Artists 110th Annual Exhibition Opening Night 15 May

The opening of the BSA's annual exhibition at the Victoria Art Gallery is something I always look forward to, despite it being almost impossible to see the work, or raise a glass of wine to one's lips because of the crush of people. The opening night was held on 15 May from 6-8pm, with speeches at 6.30pm, and although I hung about where the speeches were held last year in order to take photos of the opening by Deidre McSharry and prize giving in the presence of Deputy Mayor of Bath, Cllr Lisa Brett, it was really the speech by Tim Carroll that I really wanted to hear and photograph!!
I ended up as far away from where the speeches took place, as it was possible to be, so photos are a bit mixed this year.
Firstly, 3 photos of the crush:


Then photos of Tim Carroll's 3 pieces:
 Above 'Mars and Venus' and 'Pendine Sands', at a bit of angle, but at least no decapitated heads.
I haven't got a very good of 'The Meeting', it was hard to get near it, I'm visiting the exhibition next Monday as part of a Frameworks event held in Bath, so may be able to get better photos then.

Jane Milner-Barry had this painting exhibited:
 and Ken White had a couple of lino cuts on show, to be photographed soon.
The fabulous exhibition continues until 27 June, do go and have a look.
