Peterborough Art Society
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas 2017 and a very Happy New Year for 2018.
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 to be confirmed, but is likely to be end of May, beginning of 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 email@example.com 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.
Peterborough Art Society Christmas Party 2017
Monday 4th December saw our members come together to have a wonderful Christmas Party.
All the members contributed to the food and to presents for "Pass the parcel". As each parcel contained at least three items, and there were enough raffle prizes for every person there, everyone went away with an armful of goodies.
We finished the evening off with a beautiful musical event given to us by our member Alan Landsburgh. It was extremely entertaining. Thank you Alan.
See some pictures from this in our events gallery.

A reminder to all members that we have our 'Chairman's Challenge' being judged at our Feburary 2018 meeting. The challenge was to produce a picture with the subject of fruit. Anything to do with fruit - still life, fruit trees etc.
The finish picture need not be framed, just bring it along on that evening as it is, to be judged by your fellow members. Details of how the voting will go, will be given out on the evening, or closer to that time. 1st Prize is £45, 2nd Prize is £15. Good luck everyone.
Looking forward to our AGM and our February 2018 Critique Evening
On Monday 15th January 2018 we will be holding our Annual General Meeting, for members. This is where members can come along and see how the society has been performing during 2017, and what we have planned for 2018. It is also an opporunity for members to have their say in what they would like the committee to look at during the year. The meeting starts at 7.30pm at St Marks Church Hall, Lincoln Road, Peterborough. Only Member can vote.
On Monday February 5th February we will be holding our annual 'Critique Evening', where we will ask members to bring along a painting that they would wish to receive some feedback from fellow members, with a view to enhancing the picture, or for ideas of what to change. For details of where and when we meet for all future eveings, please take a look at our programmes page.
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.
