BRIXHAM ART SOCIETY EXHIBITIONS
Our next exhibition will be our Annual Summer Art Exhibition at the Scala Hall, Market St Brixham
17th - 24th August
10.00am to 6.00pm daily ( last day closes at 4.00)
We have a large number of very talented artists in our society and this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to see their work. All work is original and available at very attractive prices.
There will be a wide range of subject matter and media, so something for everyone!
We usually have a children's table where paints and coloured pencils are available to keep the little ones happy while parents browse.
If anyone is interested in joining our lively society then there will be stewards around each day for advice and information, or simply email Julia at
This wonderful event is free to all.
Brixham Art Society members / Information regarding labeling of work for exhibitions
A label should be affixed to the back of the work with artist’s name, title of work, medium and price.
A separate card (provided) should be filled in with the same details. This will be hung next to your work so should be written clearly. Please tie this on to your painting with string long enough to hang over the front.
Works for hanging must have D-rings fitted (not hooks) approximately one third from the top of the frame, and picture cord (wire or string not acceptable).
The picture cord should not be strung too tightly or too loosely.
The back of the frame should be neatly sealed with picture tape (not parcel tape or masking tape).
Additionally - unframed canvases must have painted edges with no staples or tacks visible.
