STONEHAVEN ART CLUB
The friendly local art club
STONEHAVEN ART CLUB
Our new ‘virtual’ gallery is now open
Stonehaven Art Club has long prided itself as a mixing pot of artists of every persuasion. Whether they be trained or entirely amateur, pursuing art as a principal (or sideline) career or those for whom the making of art is purely a leisure activity, everyone is equally welcome.
The club aims to inform and encourage all artists through talks, workshops and exhibitions.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, to comply with government restrictions on meetings and socialising in groups, all Stonehaven Art Club meetings and events are, sadly, on hold. We will resume as soon as we are told it is safe to do so or can put in place suitable precautions to protect our members, guests and visitors.
In the meantime, we are having an “Artist of the Week” on our Facebook page where a different artist showcases their work.
Formed in 1973 as a sketch group, Stonehaven Art Club was officially founded two years later in 1975.
Since then it has gone from strength to strength. Holding an annual exhibition each year of members works, it also has standing exhibitions in a number of other locations.
Whatever your interest in art, Stonehaven Art Club promises you a warm and friendly welcome.
From April to November, the club holds a monthly evening meeting on an art related subject.
Demonstrations by practising artists, talks on art history and critique nights have all been held in recent months.
Open to club members and, subject to space, visitors for a small entrance fee.
From April to November the club hosts a monthly workshop. Usually on a Saturday, workshops are hands on events led by local artists who give insight to their particular topic or technique.
These are always well attended and places go quickly!
Each year the club holds an Annual Exhibition of members work. From oils to watercolours, acrylics to charcoal the variety is huge.
The Exhibition is open to the public and most works are for sale.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the club went ‘virtual’ for its exhibition. Works from the exhibition are on display in the Gallery.
