The BVA was established in 1999 to provide an informal network offering support and information to artists living in and around the Shropshire border town of Oswestry in the UK. The group holds regular meetings, part social part ‘talking shop’, and puts on several annual events.

BVA members also have solo shows as well as occasional group exhibitions and every month we hold a small show in a dedicated space at Oswestry Library.

There are currently members working in disciplines including painting, textiles, sculpture, photography, woodcarving, glass, pottery and printmaking. Our members welcome studio visits by members of the public who have made a prior appointment.

We welcome new members. The annual membership fee is £20. More information (including an application form) is available on our main website: www.BorderlandVisualArts.com
