Towers of East Anglia Art Exhibition

The Landguard Fort and warm evening sunshine welcomed over sixty people to a private view of the BWTAS sponsored exhibition; Towers of East Anglia.

BWTAS Chairman Wil Harvey (far left) gave our thanks to David Morgan (second from left) and the Landguard Fort Trust for their assistance with the show.

Wil welcomed our distinguished guests; Felixstowe's Mayor Councillor Angela Goodwin and her husband Councillor John Goodwin.

Towers, with their visual impact, always inspire feelings of awe and curiosity.

The exhibition shows over 90 works by twenty artists with a common interest in depicting architecture.

Artists exhibiting include Clare Johnson, Mark Beesley, Joan Sandford-Cook, Sandra Rowney, John Barham, Charles Nightingale, Alan Wright, Dorin Elvin, Elle Thompson, Kate Coleman, Michael Norman, Liz Klotz and others.

Most of the works are available for purchase.

Alfie has lately secured a six month internship with an American sculpture studio.

A wide range of BWTAS merchandise is for sale.

A full catalogue will appear online in due course. Meantime, the exhibition runs until Sunday July 19, 2009.

BWTAS profiled in Current Archaeology

BWTAS is very grateful to Chris Catling news editor of Current Archaeology magazine for his page length profile of the society in issue 233 under 'Odd Socs'.

One of our committee is a regular reader of the UK's best selling archaeology magazine and so it was a pleasant surprise to see BWTAS profiled without any prior knowledge.

It's useful to see how we present ourselves reflected in the media and we appreciate the publicity this brings. We're proud to be placed in the company of the "least known and most dedicated" of societies.

This PR break comes after the recent regret that after their enquiry we had to inform Hat Trick, the producers of Have I Got News for You, that we didn't publish our newsletter on paper anymore for them to feature in their television programme.

The respective issue won't be available online for several months. To get your copy please ask your newsagent or go to
