BAW 2020 virtual themes


Saturday, 6th June - Breaking Free

Moving beyond old habits and trying out new techniques. Or work that expresses an exuberance and a passion for being in, and then altering, the moment. A collection representing freedom of movement or thought.


Sunday, 7th June - Nature

Work that uses the natural world as it’s starting point. Realistic depictions of life, or abstract expressions of the sights of our world and the feelings that it creates.


Monday, 8th June - Treasure

The special things that we hold dear to us. Golden memories or brilliant things newly discovered. Precious moments or precious objects.


Tuesday, 9th June – Neighbours

People, places, things. Together or apart, similar or different, literal or abstract. How things relate to and/or affect each other.


Wednesday, 10th June  - From My Window

What do you see - or how do you feel about what you see? Subjective perspective!


Thursday, 11th June - Colour & Light

A selection of work focussing on the capturing/mastering of these seemingly simple, but deceptively difficult components. Bright and bold or soft and ethereal.


Friday, 12th June - The Shape of Things

The intentioned execution of work where the overriding impression is of shape and form. Whimsical, over-blown, simple or small and perfectly formed.


Saturday, 13th June - Simple Pleasures

A subject open to endless personal choice. The basic best that life offers; moments, experiences, endeavours.


Sunday, 14th June - Fantasy

Where does your mind go when it escapes from the routine, the everyday or the known world?  


Monday, 15th June - Abstractions

Interpretations. Work that goes beyond the literal and representational depiction of a subject or idea. Work that often becomes more about depicting an expression of how the subject makes you feel than simply the subject itself. 



Tuesday, 16th June - Bridges & Connections

Journeying and discovering or touching and relating. What happens when two people/places/things are introduced to each other? Where one person, place or thing meets another and what happens next.


Wednesday, 17th June - Joy

Exuberance, fun, delight; for the maker, in the subject or the viewer, in the execution. 


Thursday, 18th June - What's Inside

Showing what makes you tick as an artist or maker. Or creating a box to be opened, a mystery to be solved, a depiction to be understood.


Friday, 19th June - Textures

Pieces intentionally created where the surface or feel of the work is an important component.  


Saturday 20th June - It's All In the Detail

A collection of work where the individual parts or components add an extra level of enjoyment to the whole. 


Sunday, 21st June – Work Created During Lockdown
