Celebration of Members Work​
At the Celebration of Members Work on the 12th January 2023, all members will be given the opportunity, if they so wish, to display a piece of their artwork for consideration and constructive discussion.

A well respected, local art critic will share their views on the  objective characteristics of good art : the composition, the right amount of details, the colour palette, and the use of light and shadow.

Many members have increased their artistic confidence by taking part in the Celebration of Members Work and used the constructive feedback to develop their skills or to diversify into other genres or mediums.

We do hope that you will join us at The Towner Gallery on 12th January 2023 for, what is always, an enjoyable and enlightening evening.
