Brixham Art Society

Brixham Art Society has a long tradition of encouraging local art lovers to immerse themselves in the engrossing activity of painting, and to share ideas expressed in a variety of media. We all gain confidence from watching others at work, and trying out new subject matter. We discuss, suggest and encourage each other on how to improve our skills. Members also have the opportunity to see their works displayed at the Society’s Annual Summer Exhibition, held in August at the Scala Hall in Brixham, where members of the public can wander freely around the many paintings, drawings and prints on display. There is keen competition between our members for the cups and certificates variously awarded.

Monthly demonstrations given by professional artists take place in the evening at Brixham Rugby Club, on the third Tuesday of the month when more than 30 of our members regularly attend. The use of a camcorder and projector enables everyone to see an enlarged close-up of the evening’s demo, and a lively question and answer session usually ensues. More details on the current demonstration events can be found on our website http://www.brixhamartsociety.co.uk

Other activities include workshops, critiques, gallery trips and less formal events.

We very much welcome new members, who will soon find themselves among friends with similar interests. Fees, at April 2019 are £22.50 full member, and £16 associate. Non-members/visitors are welcome at £3.50

Those interested are invited to view our website, http://www.brixhamartsociety.co.uk
