Start Painting now towards our next Exhibition – it’s a BIG one!

The Gallery at Ilminster Arts centre is a well-known social hub.  It has a popular café and is an important centre for art courses, visiting musicians, and a wide variety of arts and crafts. Exhibitions there are well-attended and its shop is popular with locals and visitors alike.

From 30th April to 18th May it will host an exhibition of framed and unframed paintings, sculptures, jewellery and anything of an artistic nature that our talented Yeovil Art Group members can exhibit.  Our last exhibition there, in 2022, resulted in several sales and was, according to the manager “a very popular exhibition, selling good, affordable art at reasonable prices.”

Our theme this time is ‘Summertime’, which can be interpreted in any way you wish, whether in the form of past memorable summers, wishful thinking, or well-known summer images!  Up to three framed paintings or other items may be entered.  There are stringent requirements as to presentation and standards are high at this well-known venue.  All will be explained when entry forms are distributed to members in late February.

Make sure you’ll be there - start painting your Summertime images now!!
