Mike Draper, exhibition coordinator for BDAS, said: “Our annual exhibition is now in its 33rd year and continues to go from strength to strength. The 2017 event was extremely successful in terms of visitor numbers and art sales and we’re confident that we will see a similar outcome this year.

“The exhibition is our society’s ‘shop window’ to the people of Bridgnorth and the surrounding area. As well as giving our members the chance to showcase their artistic talents, visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase some wonderful original works at prices to suit all pockets. We look forward to welcoming local people and visitors to Bridgnorth to our exhibition.”

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

Mike Draper added: “We welcome new members and anyone interested in joining the BDAS can find out more about us and how to join at the exhibition or by checking out our Facebook page BridgnorthArtsSociety.”
