Retford Art Society

by | 4 June 2024 | Art, Hobbies, Retford

Retford Art Society’s Spring Exhibition, in its new venue – the recently-refurbished Grove Street Methodist Chapel – has been a great success. Many paintings and cards have been sold and gone to new homes. The Society would like to thank the Methodist community for all their support.

Now we are into early summer and gardens filling with flowers. Erica Just is a talented painter of plants who uses watercolour to create delicate detailed work, and this will be the subject of her Demonstration in the Swan Studio on Thursday 27th June at 7.00pm.

The Swan Studio is over the bike shop at the bottom of Carolgate, underneath the archway. The cost is £5.00 (non-members £7.00). To book ring Jill on 01777 248285 or e mail

Life drawing sessions will be held in the Swan Studio on Wednesdays 12th and 26th June from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. The cost is £7.00 for non-members.

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.

There may be some outdoor group painting sessions this month too. For more information email
