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.
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!
For the safety of our members, it is with regret that we are cancelling all SGA activities for March, April, May and June. We will then reassess the situation. We hope to be able to go ahead with our exhibition in October – so spend some of this enforced free time painting!!
Sadly, we have had to continue with our cancellations and there will be no meeting on 8 July (Richard Turner) or 12 August (Paul Weaver). The outside painting in Wells on 1 June and Painting together on 13 June are also cancelled. We will review further dates nearer the time.
