Next event

Our next event will be our Annual General Meeting on 10th March. Before we break for wine and cheese, and the raffle, Ian Philpot will present a short talk on the subject of copyright in art.

Just a reminder that all SWAS / Committee posts will become vacant at the AGM.

You can also paint at our Monday workshop - more details here

Derrick Turner Images

Please see all the galleries for the Derrick Turner competition from 2017 onwards; unfortunately, as these images were taken on the evenings, not all the information (artist, title, medium) was available to me - I should be grateful if you would contact me if you can add more details.


Members Gallery

Members may have any of their painting images posted here and these may be for sale if you wish. If you have any images you would like posted in this gallery, please send them to the Web Manager. The Members’ gallery is online here

The following pictures were selected to represent the Society in the TAPC Competition, " Art Club of the Year, 2019 ". The winning clubs were exhibited at "Patchings", in October/ November.

Photo Album

I have added a new feature to the website - ‘Photo Album’. This is intended to show photographs from the Society’s archives, going back up to about 40 years ago! If you have any photographs which you think may be of interest or can help to identify past members shown in photographs already posted, then please let us know. You can find Photo Album here. More photos will be added in due course.
