Our Society is the longest established in the area, having been formed in 1941 by 6 friends from the Art School in Silver Street, Grimsby. We currently have over 80 members with a wide range of abilities, from hobby painters to professional artists.

We try to arrange a varied calendar of activities for members, beginning in February with our AGM which is followed by a lunch and a demo/talk by a guest artist. The day gives members a chance to kick off the year with an enjoyable social occasion and catch up with friends, as well as checking up on how the
Society is progressing.

Throughout the year there are more opportunities to get together, with social painting sessions, outdoor painting days in summer and workshops with well respected artists (these have included Ron Ranson, Ashley Jackson, Bryan Ryder, Rob Brindley, Terry Harrison, Roy Lang, Robert Wareing, Jill Carter and Vic

We hold 2 exhibitions each year. In recent times our main exhibition of the year has been held in the beautiful setting of Grimsby Minster, which is a fabulous venue and always very well attended. The second event is held in various locations in the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area.

We end the year on a high with our Christmas lunch, followed by a demonstration by a visiting artist.

We are a friendly group, and new members are always welcomed and encouraged to take part in any of our activities.
