Bath Society of Artists Opening Night

There have been too many things going on to add them to the blog, and now I want to publicise the Original Artwork Lottery at the Arts Centre, during the Swindon Festival of Literature, so I need to add photos to the blog, and include minimum text to be able to add them all. The BSA exhibition was particularly interesting to see because Tim was honorary exhibition organiser, so I heard the minutiae of the day to day progress of the exhibition.
I have taken this information from the Victoria Art Gallery's website

Bath Society of Artists 111th Annual Exhibition

Now in its 111th year, this hugely popular exhibition showcases the best of the region’s artistic talent. Any artist aged 18 or over can submit work for possible selection. All the artwork is for sale.
The Society was founded in 1904 with 26 members. It has grown over the years to a membership of around 120 diverse, talented artists. Many distinguished 20th-century painters have exhibited with the Society including Walter Sickert, John Singer Sargent, Philip Wilson Steer, Gilbert Spencer, Patrick Heron, Mary Fedden, William Scott and Howard Hodgkin.

Vital information:

Some photos taken on the night give you an idea of how many people were there::

 I was very excited to learn Kaffe Fassett was the guest speaker, he was every bit as impressive and inspirational as his designs
 I tried to get a photo of Tim Carroll's 3 paintings, not possible to see it here:
 this is better
 and here;s another one
 and the third:
I've also included this recently acquired picture by David Inshaw:
