Welcome to the Somerton Group of Artists.

Are you interested in art? Why not join us!

Here you will find a very friendly local artists group from Somerton and the surrounding areas, Somerset, UK. We welcome all new members who are interested in art. You don’t even have to be a painter yourself to get involved – you may just want to meet other people with the same interests. We are well established and have around 60 members of all ages and abilities.

We hold a year round programme of talks and demonstrations by professional artists with occasional day-long workshops. We have ‘painting together’ sessions and outside painting and sketching sessions in the summer. These are usually held with somewhere for lunch or tea nearby! In the winter, some members also meet weekly in Long Load Village Hall to paint together every Tuesday morning from 10am. to 1pm. 

We hold an annual exhibition of our work, and all members are invited to participate.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please contact us for a chat or just turn up to one of our events or sessions. You will be made very welcome!

NEXT MEETING- Wednesday 9 February 7.30pm in the Somerton Parish Rooms  Portrait Drawing with Tracy and Mark Nesbit  
Members are invited to an evening of portrait drawing in small groups with life models (probably committee members!) Tracy and Mark, both fine artists and experienced teachers, will circulate between the groups to discuss concerns, provide information and help members to develop as portrait artists. Beginners are very welcome – this will be a fun and informative evening! Please bring pencils and drawing pads. Regretfully, to enable everyone to get individual attention and to help with social distancing, this event is only open to SGA members.
