Whitby Art Society has been in existence for more than 40 years and currently has about 90 members. Most members practice art in some form - mainly painting in a variety of mediums. Some members work in ceramics, printing or sculpture and various forms of material design, whilst others appreciate and enjoy art for its own sake.
We meet at The Coliseum Centre, Victoria Place, Whitby YO21 1EZ on the second Wednesday of every month from 7.00 - 9.00pm. The monthly meetings take the form of a demonstration or talk by an invited professional artist or craftsperson. Questions are welcomed! Each evening includes a break for a coffee or a drink at the bar.
Meetings in December & February are replaced with the Christmas Dinner & the AGM respectively. The AGM also includes a critique by professional artists of members' submitted work.
We hold an annual selling exhibition in the Spring at the Pannett Art Gallery, Pannett Park, Whitby. Other events are planned from time to time. We always welcome new members and membership fees are currently £25 per annum, payable from February. Guests are also welcome for a fee of £3 per evening.
