66th Annual Exhibition

Our 66th Annual Exhibition is coming up fast and we think it will be a good one.

200 + amateur and professional artists will be entering work from far & wide to go past our judging panel on 10 August. This year we have £1,150 in awards from sponsors.

More and more artists in the region are seeing the benefits of joining our unique and flourishing art society.

Once you’re a member (apart from all the other benefits) you can enter your work in our exhibition – up to 5 pictures & up to 5 sculptures.

Become a member now by sending off the membership form but be quick if you want to enter work for this year’s exhibition

Gary Cook Workshop

Plein Air Watercolour Painting with Gary Cook ASGFA
16 – 17 May
Day 1   It was apple blossom time in the orchard outside Hadspen village hall, and  after a slide show tutorial the group spent the day outdoors painting under Gary’s guidance.
Day 2  was wet so Gary set large colour prints on the walls and used demonstrations to guide the group with many tips from colour choice to using salt crystals.
He was a sensitive and thoughtful tutor showing the group exactly how to capture the light, as promised.  The final show of work was very impressive.


We’re now on Instagram

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.
