Retford Art Society is holding its spring exhibition at St Swithun’s Church, Retford, beginning on Thursday 28th April. The exhibition will be open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays for three weeks, ending on Saturday 14th May and also on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May. Hours of opening will be 10.00am to 4.00pm.

It will be two years since the society has held a live exhibition so it will be a welcome return and an opportunity for many local artists to show what they have been painting during the ‘Covid years’.

The society’s headquarters are at the Swan Studio in Carolgate and activities are gradually returning with regular painting, sketching and life drawing sessions. They are also hoping to set up an art discussion group. New members of all abilities and ages are always welcome. Do look them up or have a chat to the stewards during the exhibition.
