EVENTS

Alongside our weekly workshops, we hold three major exhibitions every year, Spring, Summer and Winter. They are held in the Society rooms in Sussex House on the Pantiles and normally last for 10 days over two weekends. All members are invited to submit their work.

We also offer members the opportunity to hire out our gallery space for their own weekend Pop-Up exhibitions or 10 day private exhibitions. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, please contact us to find out more.
