Exhibitions and Other News

Our Monday art sessions for members have been suspended due to the Coronavirus situation with effect from 17th March 2020.

During the Spring of 2020 we are mounting an exhibition of artworks for sale in the inner gallery of Victoria Hall in Oakham High Street, as part of the Hall's Pictures For Pleasure exhibition which is open to the public on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays approx.9.00am until 4.00pm (when the plantsman and Hall Trustee John Snell mans his stall outside). Other artists also exhibit in the gallery space. Notices are posted up near our Oakham Art Group works should anyone wish to make a purchase, and prices are mostly well below £100. Or you can use the CONTACT US button above. Our exhibition runs until 30th April, access days and times as given above. PLEASE NOTE - It is likely that this exhibiting space is closed for the time being due to the above emergency situation.

Our Summer 2019 Exhibition was held from Aug 30th to Sept 18th at Stamford Arts Centre. Twenty of our thirty members exhibited and 14 artworks were sold. We hope to return to this heavily pre-booked venue for a summer fortnight in 2021, having last secured a much sought after gallery booking there in 2016.

Occasionally we have local artists run demonstration sessions, and in November 2018 we engaged Peter Barker RSMA of Uppingham to paint in oils a winter frosty scene of a bend on the River Welland with rural fields, trees and telegraph poles in the misty background. His expertise with almost photographic detail in only about 90 minutes was very well demonstrated, as was his remarkable skill at filling in foliage and realistic detail only using a small part of the bristles of a one inch decorator’s domestic paint brush. Do visit his new gallery in Hope's Yard, Uppingham just off the High Street to see his truly fabulous paintings.
