It’s always fab to have some nice news to share on Born again Swindonian about any one of the lovely artists here in Swindon.

This post is about Tim Carroll and the Bath Society of Artists Open Exhibition 2019, for whom he’s the exhibition organiser.

Not only is one of Tim’s paintings, Orangerie, on the exhibition poster, he also has some paintings in the exhibition.

‘This highly popular exhibition showcases the best of the region’s artistic talent and is a must for art lovers and collectors alike, with all works 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, Patrick Heron, Mary Fedden and Howard Hodgkin.’

Gardens, galleries and walking around

On her lovely blog, Gardens, galleries and walking around, Tim’s partner Linda and great mate of mine, has put a post on her blog about Tim Carroll at Bath Society of artists and the opening night at the Victoria Art Gallery. With Tim being exhibition organiser, Linda has all the ‘behind the scenes’ info. As she says in her blog, it’s a tremendous undertaking to select and gather work together to exhibit in the wonderfully prestigious Victoria Art Gallery.
