Welcome to Chagford Art Group!
We are a friendly group of people who meet to paint together every Thursday afternoon in term time. We welcome artists of all levels of experience from beginners to those who have been painting for longer. We meet between 2 - 4pm in the Chagford Recreational Trust cricket pavilion. These sessions are a relaxed "do your own thing" affair, and we work in a variety of media. We take a break for tea around 3.30pm and to have a chat. Occasionally we have a visiting professional artist to demonstrate and we also arrange day workshops in the pavilion with an artist. The aim is to help each other and draw inspiration from painting in a group.
Membership is currently £35 per annum, payable at the AGM which takes place in October each year. New members are welcome to come along on a Thursday afternoon to try us out and it may be possible to pay a proportion of the annual fee if you join halfway through the year. Guests may come to the demonstrations on payment of a small fee, currently £4 each. To enter any of our exhibitions you have to have paid your subscription, been a member for at least six months, and we do like to see you at least three times a term if possible.
We hold this every year in the Jubilee Hall, Chagford TQ13 8DP. This year it will be on 9th to 12th August 2017 opening times 10am to 4pm every day. Free admission.
This is an eagerly awaited event which is always well-attended and members are allowed to bring guests to the preview night, which is on 8th August 2017.
Members are invited to submit up to 6 works to hang, 6 unframed or prints for the browser and unlimited greetings cards. Hanging fees apply and the Group takes 15% commission on hung or browser works sold, 10% on greetings cards. There is a non-selection policy but all work is hung at the discretion of the committee.
