Peterborough Art Society
Thank you for visiting our site. We welcome all newcomers to our Society, whether you just have an interest in art, or you are an amateur or professional artist, you will be given a warm welcome.
Why not come along to one of our regular monthly evenings as a visitor. You can enjoy a cup of tea and a chat with like minded people. Check out our programme schedule which shows details of our upcoming monthly meetings/demonstrations and other events. Also take a look at the details about joining us.
Our next exhibition will be our Annual, at St Johns Church, Cathedral Square, Peterborough. Open from 10am to 4pm. Date 5th to 16th June.
This is always very well attended and lots of pictures are always sold.
This exhibition is open to all of our society members. If you would like to exhibit with us, but are not yet a member, then please get in touch with us on email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and we can forward you a form.
We currently have a small exhibition of a selection of members work, on various walls in the foyer and restaurant of the Key Theatre, Embankment Road, Peterborough. Please do go and take a look. Especially if you are going along to book seats or to visit the restaurant before a show.
Painting Days Out
We often organise painting days out for members during the year. 2017 saw us going to many venues, such as Elton Hall, Thorpe Hall, Nene Valley Railway Station, Peterborugh Catherdral Square amongst a couple of others.
We will be once again organising such days during 2018, and are looking for ideas from members as to where else they would like to go to. Even asking if any member wishes to organise a day out.
We intend to go back to Thorpe Hall and Nene Valley Railways, as they were extremely enjoyable and have already been requested by some members. But where else would inspire you?
If you are interested in joining us there, but are not a member, then why not join Peterborough Art Society. You can contact us using our contact form, requesting a member application or you could come along to one of our meetings at St Marks Church Hall and join then. Please see our programme for details of when.

Inspiring Demonstration by Mo Teeuw
A demonstration by Mo Teeuw on Monday 14th May was very inspiring, not just for how quickly Mo worked, but also the hints and tips she gave us about 'how' she works.
Mo mosty uses brushes from Rosemary & Co. A lot cheaper that the top ranges, very good quality and long lasting. She also told us that she often uses acyrlic paint mixed in with her oils to help them dry quickly. She can produce a fair number of paintings when on her painting holidays, and they are dry the next day, to be able to bring home in her case.
Mo runs residential course at home in Suffolk and also has just recently released a book on paintings clouds and skies in oils.
See Mo's finished picture below. Also to see Mo's gallery and her book, see her website www.moteeuw.co.uk See some pictures from this demonstration in our events gallery.
