Our annual exhibition this year has fascinating work from new members as well as fresh work from popular artists who have exhibited with us for many years. With 282 works from 120 artists, we think you’ll find this an outstanding exhibition.
It’s only on for a week but definitely worth coming to Bruton for.
All work is for sale. Free entry. Free parking onsite.
Would you like to be able to paint on an iPad like David Hockney?
If you have seen his exhibition “The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate in East Yorkshire” which he did in 2011, you will know how enchantingly fresh and unfettered his digital paintings are.
We have a few places left on a workshop on Saturday and Sunday the 12th and 13th of June at Hadspen Village Hall, Castle Cary, Somerset. We are lucky to have Diana Seidl, a well known artist, author and teacher in this “new” medium to help us develop (or begin in some cases) our digital experience.THE ART OF THE IPADDiana says
“This two day course will not only teach you to paint and draw on an iPad, but will also show you how it can be the most valuable tool to aid and improve your traditional painting. The technology is more simple than you think and students will be drawing and painting within 15 minutes of starting the course.” http://dianaseidl.co.uk/
The course costs £65. If you are interested, please book your place by emailing email@example.com
We were very saddened to hear of the death of Tessa McIntyre in early February. Tessa was a fine and highly respected painter and printmaker. Her work has been a key feature in many exhibitions in this region for many years. Tessa was a great supporter of the Bruton Art Society and had many friends there. She will be much missed by all who knew her.
We hear there will be an exhibition of her work in Shaftesbury at a later date and we will post details when we know more.
The Bruton Art Society will mount a special display of a selection of her work at the Annual Exhibition in August.
