Anthony Connolly RP was to run a portrait workshop for Summerleaze Gallery last week at East Knoyle, but as it couldn’t go ahead he sent daily images to would be participants & others over the 4 days & followed up with a critique of their work.
12 of our members enjoyed the challenge of these exercises.
Here are some examples of their work.
As Somerset Art Weeks Festival moves into it’s last 5 days we hope all our members exhibiting in their studios or in group exhibitions are having a successful time and getting lots of visitors.
Somerset Art Weeks is 25 years old this year & there are 135 venues.
See venues 26, 65, 67, 73, 85 & 86 for some of our members’ work
Committee member John Baxter has written an illustrated account of a Somerset Art Weeks exhibition organised by Zak Greening in Wincanton on the site of Clementinas. Called Greening the Earth Gallery, this “stunning new art gallery” particularly appealed to John & he recommends it as a “must see” for Bruton Art Society members. (See link below to read all about it & see his photos of the exhibition)

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.
