Blackpool Art Society was originally formed in 1884. It is one of the oldest Art Societies in Britain
Our aim is to encourage members to experiment with and enjoy all forms of art. Our members are a mix of leisure painters of all abilities and professional artists. Our interests are very diverse, encompassing traditional and contemporary styles in all kind of media. This makes our exhibitions really interesting and dynamic events.
We also have amongst our members, ‘The Seaside Stitchers’. This group are members of the Embroiderers Guild. The day to day running of the Society is handled by a dedicated Committee of unpaid elected volunteers.
We have our own studio which was purpose built in 1972. The studio facilities are available for all our members to use and we have several weekly studio groups, catering for various interests.
Having our own studio also enables us to hosts a very varied schedule of workshops, demonstrations and talks throughout the year.
We are pleased to invite our members to come along on Sept 30th to share in the 'Celebration of the Lottery Award' which has made the Studio more accessible
(portable ramp), better equipped (new disabled loo), and a safer environment (CCTV and the Window shields). We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to celebrate! There will be sandwiches and cakes etc., and tea and coffee FREE for all who attend - still a door charge as that is how we raise funds..... we do hope that you will be able to come along.
