"To encourage and develop our members in the creation of art"
....so all that is required from members is enthusiasm!
Our Society was founded in 1974, and in 2016 we successfully celebrated our 40th Annual Exhibition.
The Society is active and enthusiastic and gives a friendly welcome to those joining. We have almost 100 active members, and anyone may join —regardless of ability— just so long as they live within a 10 mile radius of the town of Ambleside in the English Lake District.
Meetings are held weekly throughout the year — on Tuesday evenings in the winter and Thursday afternoons in the summer. In winter we use the wonderful Ambleside Parish Centre, next to St.Mary's Church, off Compston Road (or the top of Vicarage Road) LA22 9DH. This is also the venue for our Annual Exhibition.
Archives of our activities have been maintained since the Society's inception. These include chronological photograph albums and portfolios of original art by past and present members called the 'Permanent Collection'.
