Darlington Society of Arts

Saturday 21st October - Wednesday 1st November 2017


Celebration of art work produced by members of the Society.

“Really impressed – such a lot of talented artists. Loved the exhibition”

“As varied, enjoyable and interesting as ever”

“Enjoyed the exhibition – very diverse styles. Some excellent work and hard to pick a favourite”

The above comments were from our previous exhibition and we think they are a tribute to the quality and diversity of the work produced by Darlington Society of Arts.

Our Exhibition gives the opportunity to all our members to showcase their work in the following categories:

  • Framed pictures: any media eg watercolour, oils, pastel, acrylic, mixed media, ink, brusho, etc
  • Drawings: ink, pencil, coloured pencils, etc
  • Miniatures: watercolour, egg tempera etc
  • Crafts: woodturning, ceramics, felt, glass, acrylic on stone etc
  • Computer Generated Art: use of computer to produce artwork
  • On the first Saturday we hold a Presentation Evening which is the first chance for our members to view the Exhibition whilst enjoying a glass of wine or fruit juice! Members of the society are around during the exhibition to talk to visitors and give any information required about the artists exhibiting or the Society.

The Society of Arts is open to all ages and abilities and keeps their membership fees as low as possible to encourage this – just £35 per annum for an adult and £5 for a junior. We meet each Wednesday evening from 7 – 9 pm at Hummersknott Academy, when members can work on something themselves and/or join in with a group activity. Activities include demonstrations by artists visiting the club or fun nights organised and run by club members where they share their love of a particular medium eg watercolours, pastels, book binding, lino printing etc or we try something completely new, like drawing with the other hand!

Please use the contact details listed below and arrange to come along for a free taster night so you can experience the friendly atmosphere and see what we do.
