Displaying your artwork:

This website provides a 365 day per year exhibition of members' artwork in the 'Gallery' section of this website which is included within the annual membership fee. It is also an effective way of showing to any potential browser visiting the website the very high standard of skill that our members possess. You could also sell your work. Relatively few members are taking advantage of the website gallery rooms, so if you would like to exhibit some of your artwork and you have a digital image(s) (jpg format) then attach it/them to an email and send to
If you don't have and can't make a digital image (photo) contact Keith on 01264 392411 who will be pleased to digitally photograph your artwork for you.
