Demonstrations and Talks
From experimental to mainstream we pride ourselves on seeking out speakers and demonstrators with a broad spectrum of skills and outlooks; something for everyone, in fact.
Recent visiting artists have included a print-maker creating finely detailed woodcuts, a mixed-meida painter working hand-in-glove with accidental effects, and a traditional seascape artist.
Our members are always keen to join in with informed questions and comments, making for lively debate and a relaxed atmosphere.
We use a full range of modern camcorder equipment to broadcast flair and ability in large easy-to-see imagery, which for the audience is both informative and entertaining in one package
Listed below is our new programme of demonstrations, with dates included for the August exhibition, and the AGM.
Our venue is Brixham Rugby Club, Rea Barn Road, Brixham.
Demonstrations take place from 7.30. to 9.30pm
Members Free. Guests are welcome ( £3.50 entry )
