Founded in 1971, meeting monthly and still going strong, the B.S.F.G. is a non-profit-making organisation that provides an informal atmosphere in which SF fans can meet one another and professionals in the field. You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our next two meetings.

8th September 2017
Jackie E Burns

Jackie Burns
Specializing in acrylic on canvas, with forays into digital and mixed media, Jackie expresses a deep love of all things space related, and it certainly shows with the care and detail that she puts into her work. Whether it's a commissioned piece or part of a themed exhibition, her ability to communicate the beauty of the universe hand-in-hand with mankind’s current level of science and exploration is impressive. She is a great believer that science cannot be properly explained without art and that art would be impossible without science.
Jackie is also a life-long science fiction and fantasy fan, attending far too many national and international conventions to mention, but not yet enough to satisfy her enthusiasm.
