Highworth Artists' Society
Highworth Artists’ Society is a well-established Society which started in 1969 when three
local artists ran a small exhibition in the town. We now have a membership from Highworth
and the surrounding area with a waiting list being held when required. It is regretted that
we cannot accept applications for membership from anyone under the age of 18 years.
There is Associate Membership for those who have retired from full membership but who
still wish to participate in many of our events.
We hold informal and friendly workshops every Tuesday for members who are both amateur and
professional. These sessions are stimulating and lively giving us all a chance to make new friends
and to learn from each other. Members are also invited to show their work in our successful, and
locally praised, bi-annual exhibitions.
Demonstrations by professional artists are held during the year and trips organised to events and
exhibitions of artistic interest. These events are open to members and visitors. We also like to have
an annual social gathering usually around Christmas. Regular newsletters are sent to all members
to keep them up to date with Society activities.
Membership applicants are invited to bring in three examples of their original, completed works for
a selection committee to review. Membership depends on the result of this review.
If you would like more information on our Society or would like to become a member please email our secretary using the contact page.
