A Century of British Art - Bournemouth Arts Club 1920-2020

Event Date: October 2021 – March 2022

Shortly after the ending of the First World War a group of accomplished artists most notably Geoffrey Baker, Head of the Municipal College of Art; Eustace Nash and Leslie Ward formed the Bournemouth Arts Club (BAC) to support and promote art and artists in the area. They invited leading contemporary artists to join them in exhibitions and events.

Showcased in this centenary exhibition is some of the finest twentieth century British Art drawn from national and private collections to reveal fascinating insights into how the Club flourished and responded to radical ideas and changing approaches in art. Alongside work by well-known BAC members are works by internationally acclaimed artists including Henry Moore, John Nash, Ben Nicholson, Prunella Clough and William Crozier who inspired them.

Admission to the exhibition is included in the general admission ticket.
