SO WHO ARE WE?
STARTING IN 1946 with just seven artists we approach the end of 2019 with more than 200 members who work in an eclectic mix of media and disciplines, using traditional and contemporary styles, some trained professionals, some self-taught, ages ranging across the full spectrum.
All with one thing in common - a passion for and love of the visual arts.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?
Members are encouraged and inspired in a variety of ways to exploit their artistic talents. We hold two exhibitions annually - one during the May Bank Holiday week participating in the Exmouth Festival and the other, our major Autumn Exhibition, at the stunning Ocean venue on Exmouth seafront which attracts 2000+ visitors each year.
We meet regularly for demonstrations, talks by guest speakers, competitions and for practice sessions and workshops.
WHEN AND WHERE DO WE MEET?
1st & 3rd Tuesday evening of most months 7pm-9pm for demonstrations, competitions, talks (but note CANCELLED DURING MARCH & APRIL DUE TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS).
Most Thursdays weekly from 9:30am-12:30pm and then 1pm-4pm for practice sessions and workshops (but note CANCELLED DURING MARCH & APRIL DUE TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS).
Meetings are held at the Sea Cadets Hall on Camperdown Terrace adjacent to the Exe Estuary making it a perfect location for some plein air working and workshops usually at the Manor Hotel.
WHAT OTHER ACTIVITIES DO WE ENJOY?
Our Patrons Nigel and Heleen Lyndsay-Fynn host a Summer Reception in the grounds of their glorious home Lee Ford.
We celebrate the festive season with a Christmas Party at the Holy Trinity Church on Rolle Street.
We organise trips to art events such as the RWA Open Exhibition in Bristol.
We have established links in the community working with for example local schools and other art groups, Exmouth Rotary Kite Festival and Exmouth in Bloom. We also run a now established and popular 'Back to Art' session at the Infusion Cafe in Exmouth.
