‘Art Among the Pews’ returns

The Bridgnorth & District Arts Society (BDAS) is back with its annual art exhibition this August.

Themed ‘Art Among the Pews’, due to the event being held at St Leonard’s Church in Bridgnorth, the exhibition is a popular event in the town’s calendar.

An extensive range of art works in varied styles and media, including paintings and sculpture, will be on display from Friday 18 through to Wednesday 30 August, 11am to 4pm. Entry to the exhibition is free of charge with many of the works available for purchase.

Judith Tranter, chair of BDAS, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors and art lovers to our annual exhibition again this year.  Our 2022 event was very successful in terms of visitor numbers and works sold and we have high hopes that this year’s will prove to be equally as good, if not even better for us.

“Each year this exhibition provides our members with the opportunity to showcase their creative talents, while also giving visitors the chance to enjoy and if they wish, own some great original works of art at a range of prices to suit all pockets. Our 2023 exhibition promises to be one to remember.”

Established in 1985, the BDAS is made up of artists of all abilities and styles, from beginners and keen amateurs through to full time professionals.  As well has holding weekly practical painting sessions and monthly art demonstrations, the society regularly organises workshops with some of the region’s leading artists and visits to art galleries, festivals and exhibitions.

Anyone interested in the BDAS can find out more by speaking with the society’s stewards at the exhibition or by checking out the Facebook page BridgnorthArtsSociety. The weekly practical sessions take place at St John’s Catholic Church Hall, Bridgnorth, most Thursdays from 10am to 12noon.

The exhibition takes place at St Leonard’s Church, Bridgnorth by permission of the Churches Conservation Trust.
