Artists in Conversation

The Art Society organises occasional talks by local artists to share their stories.

These are opportunity to be inspired by what other artists are doing and to gain an insight into their process. They give us a chance to come together with like-minded people to network and learn from each other. Please register so that we know how many to cater for and to ensure that there are sufficient numbers to go ahead. All these are free events, unless otherwise noted.

Members and non-members welcome.
