Lindy Wright invited to become member of Bath Society of Artists, May 2018.
Following the successful Annual Open Exhibition at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath (see below), Lindy was nominated by several of her peers to become an elected member of the Society.
The Bath Society of Artists was founded in 1904 with twenty six foundation members.
Membership stands at about 120 and is elected by the Executive Committee. Anyone wishing to join must have had work shown at the Annual Exhibition for at least two years, for which there is a selection procedure. Members become entitled to submit three works, again subject to selection; non-members may put forward two. There is an opening ceremony conducted by an established painter or sculptor with influence in the art world.
Many distinguished 20th century painters have exhibited and taken an interest in the Bath Society of Artists including Walter Sickert, John Singer Sargent, P Wilson Steer, Gilbert Spencer, William Scott, Patrick Heron, Mary Feddon, Adrian Heath and David Inshaw.
