About Our Meetings

On the first Saturday of each month, we hold a meeting at which our members and visitors alike, can enjoy art demonstrations, talks and critiques conducted by professional art demonstrators and artists.

Our uniqiue Audio Visual equipment provides a clear visual close up of the artist at work during the meetings, as well as enhanced audio for clarity of the speaker. Visitors our most welcome and we even serve tea!

We currently hold two exhibitions during the year. Our exhibitions are extreamly popular not only due to the wide variety of subject matter and styles but also the popular local artists - our members. Our exhibiting members include work by well known popular local artists as well as professional artists alike, all displaying their unique and sought after original paintings which include local scenes along side contemporary art.
