What We Offer

We are a vibrant group and each year have a full and varied schedule of events and activities enabling members to come together to share their enthusiasms and passions for the visual arts. 

On a Thursday morning of most weeks we have open, informal sessions which we hold in the Sea Cadets Hall on Camperdown Terrace.  The the focus for these sessions is decided by consensus.  Subjects have ranged from a portrait workshop, silk painting and IPad art and in the summer there is the opportunity for plein air working.  Everyone is welcome to join this popular group and to recommend potential themes. 

On the first and third Tuesday evening of each month, we meet at the Sea Cadets Hall on Camperdown Terrace for  a programme of talks, demonstrations and competitions.  We enjoy presentations by exemplary artists and many eclectic competition themes.

All subscribed members are eligible to enter the two exhibitions we hold annually at the Ocean complex on Exmouth seafront.  In May, participating in the Exmouth Festival, we are on the first floor and in October on the second floor Estuary Suite.  The venue overlooks the Exe Estuary and the large picture windows and outside balconies allow access to some stunning views of this area of outstanding natural beauty.  A wonderful source of inspiration for the artists! 

As often as possible visits to art based events are arranged.  Destinations, often proposed by members, have taken in the National Museum in Cardiff, Penlee House in Penzance and galleries in Bath.  We always go to the Bristol RWA Open Exhibition in the autumn.

We are very much a community group and so our social calendar is an important aspect including a summer champagne reception hosted by our Patrons.
