Group introduction

Bridlington Art Society

About the Society:
Bridlington Art Society was first formed in 1949 by an enthusiastic group of local artists, who wanted to develop their knowledge and promote their art. Today we have about 75 members who reside in Bridlington and the surrounding area, who all share a similar interest. We are a friendly bunch of people and have an 'everyone welcome policy'. It does not matter if you are a beginner, improver or a professional artist or maybe just have an interest in art.

Monthly meetings:
We usually meet the first Friday of the month in the Bridlington North Library from 7.00pm until 9.00pm. There is an interesting and varied program of events that include professional art demonstrations, talks and the occasional social evening.

Exhibitions:
We hold our Annual Exhibition at the spa gallery in Bridlington. This is an excellent opportunity to display/sell your work or perhaps even win an award! We also hold exhibitions at Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall and every Sunday during the summer months there is the chance to display your art at out 'pop up' sea front exhibition!

Social Activities:
Helping with the exhibitions is great way to get to know new people. We also enjoy the occasional meal out and general social evenings.
Weekly workshops run every Monday (Sewerby Church Hall. 7.00pm to 9.00pm). You can also join our 'General Art Workshop'. Although we help and encourage each other, this is a non-teaching group. You just bring whatever you are working on, and enjoy a couple of hours painting. At the moment we have members working in watercolour, oils, acrylics, charcoal, pen and ink and coloured pencils. The evening is very informal with plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits consumed. (There is a small weekly subscription).

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

We arrange monthly demonstrations, given by experienced artists who explain their skills. We are in desperate need of some projection equipment, so that we can project their work for all the members to see.

"If we were fortunate enough to receive this help, it would make such a difference to our meetings."
