Founded in 1947, Yeovil Art Group owes its existence to the initiative and enthusiasm of Mr. Bert Hughes, who placed an advertisement in the local paper asking for like-minded people. Today the group consists of artists and aspiring artists who enjoy the refreshing atmosphere of the group. The group is always on the lookout for new members and we look forward to welcoming you into its warm and inspiring environment.
