The Art Group is a well established group, meeting on Monday afternoons in the Phoenix Room from 2.00-4.30 pm.

There are three sessions a year, comprising about 11 indoor meetings from October to Christmas, 11 from January to April, and 4 early in the summer session;  later in the summer, there are usually (weather permitting!) some full- or half-day outdoor sketching meetings. The programme of work is interesting and varied, and Art Group members take an active part in suggesting the topics. The current programme is on display at the Arts Centre.

Each session offers the opportunities for drawing and painting a wide range of subjects, practising familiar and experimenting with unfamiliar styles and media.  It will generally include visits from several tutors, and often the use of models. Materials are not provided. Members have the chance to display and sell their work at the Group’s annual exhibition in the Arts Centre.

The Art Group is open to all, but numbers are limited by the space available, and the challenge for tutors on a brief visit of giving effective help to too large a group.  All levels of ability are welcome. However, complete beginners should note that a systematic course of instruction is not offered.   Applicants must be paid-up members of the Arts Centre.  In addition, the Art Group makes a charge at the start of each session to cover the fees of tutors and models booked;  this is usually around £40.

Outside art sessions also take place - weather allowing!

Details of the current season's activities can be found here

The Gallery

Opening hours 10.00am-4.00pm Monday-Saturday inclusive. Entry free.

Gallery_630x320px

The purpose-built gallery is an integral part of the Centre on the ground floor off the entrance foyer and provides local artists and art groups, craftspeople and crafts groups, professional and amateur, with a venue in which to show and sell their work to the general public.

It is also available for in-house groups to display their activities. It is run by a gallery manager who supervises and records the bookings and hires it out for one or two week periods for a booking fee plus commission on sales (in-house groups are not charged the booking fee).
