by | 20 April 2024 | Art, Hobbies, Retford

Retford Art Society is busy preparing for its Spring Exhibition, running from Tuesday 30th April to Saturday 11th May (excluding Sunday), 10.00am to 4.00pm.

They have a superb new venue in the Methodist Chapel on Grove Street. It will have been newly refurbished and the chapel floods with wonderful light from above. There will be pictures for sale, some of local scenes, and morning coffee in the café if you are lucky.

Painting a landscape is a popular choice and, on Thursday 25th April, Phil Biggs will demonstrate how he uses watercolours in a loose way for this. The demonstration will be in the Swan Studio and starts at 7.00pm. The Swan is at the bottom of Carolgate through the archway and above the bike shop. The cost for non-members is £7.00.

Life Drawing sessions will be held in the Swan Studio on Wednesdays 3rd April, 17th April and 1st May, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. The cost is £7.00.

The Swan Studio is open as usual for communal painting on Tuesday evenings from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and Friday afternoons from 2.00pm to 4.00pm at no cost.
