Members enjoyed the day & we’d really recommend a visit.
The Society has just opened an Instagram account and we’ve made a good start with 120 followers within 2 weeks!
We’ve been showing images from our exhibitions and are linking up with many other artists in the region.
Quite a few of our members enjoy using Instagram.
For those who don’t know – Instagram allows artists to get their work seen if they want to share it, but they can also enjoy the work of many other artists – locally, nationally & internationally.
