  1. As a former pupil of Moseley School of Art I would be interested in submitting paintings to your exhibition, but I specialise in wildlife art, this appears to be outside your remit, am I correct in my assumtion.

  2. Hi Anthony,

    Apologies for the delay in contacting you. The themes for the exhibition are Moseley Road Baths, swimming and at a stretch, water. So, if you think you have any work that is relevant to those topics then please submit something to memories@friendsofmrb.co.uk.

    We would also encourage former pupils from the School of Art to attend as there will be opportunity for people to record their memories of Moseley Road Baths! We know that a lot of pupils swam there and recall attending swimming galas at the pool.
