Our aim is to educate, promote and support members of our local community who have an interest in the world of art in its many forms.
We welcome anyone, whether you are an experienced artist, a beginner or simply have an interest in artistic pursuits.
There are monthly meetings with speakers covering all aspects of art.
For those who wish to make their own art there are fortnightly painting sessions at the Unitarian Meeting House in Framlingham and painting days out in the summer months.
Members are always willing to share ideas and give advise.
The Summer Exhibition which took place in St Micheal's Rooms from Thursday 12th August - Sunday 15th August was a great success. Huge thanks to Anne Smith who organised the event with her usual efficiency and eye for detail.
We had record visitor numbers and sales which made the whole endeavour worthwhile. For a long time there was great uncertainty leading up to the exhibition as to whether COVID rules would allow us to go ahead so our efforts paid off in the end.
Our first meeting of the year will take place on Friday 10th September. It is a drawing workshop and we look forward welcoming you all back.
Painting at the Unitarian Meeting House will start on Monday October 4th and then every fortnight 10am till noon. Many thanks to Bill Fleming for taking on the role of coordinating these sessions.
The next membership subscription due in October has been set at £20 which will include free entry of paintings into our exhibitions. Joint family membership will remain at £25. This change saves a huge amount of administrative time when organising our exhibitions. The small rise in membership also covers the increased fees for hall hire and speakers' fees. We feel that the membership fee offers exceptional value for money to our members with all the events that are offered.
Are held on the second Friday of every month at the United Free Church Hall, Framlingham.
Start times 2.30pm
Tea and biscuits available
