Coronavirus

Due to the ongoing crisis around Covid-19 all events at Brixham Art Society have been suspended until further notice. 

Please , however, visit our 'Isolation Art' page where we will have monthly challenges to paint according to a given theme.

The first theme has been to paint or draw a self-portrait. Seemed appropriate to the times we are living through!

Keep safe everyone out there.

Brixham Open Art Competition.Saturday 7th September.

 

What a wonderful day that was!  This joint venture between Brixham Art Society and Brixham Marina, was better than we could have hoped for. Artists descended on Brixham from far and wide, armed with their paints and easels and painted solidly all day until judging at 5:00pm, when they were surrounded by interested spectators. 

 

I would like to give a special thanks to Andrew Millar of MDLBrixham Marina, whose sponsorship of the event, monetary donation, and practical help made it all possible.

 

Thanks also go to Brixham Town Council, as through its grant’s scheme we have been successful in obtaining a sum of money which contributed to the success of the project. Art is important to our wellbeing. To have an event such as this raises the profile of both art and artists and generates public interest in art itself. The event has certainly raised the profile of Brixham.

 

Thank you also to the Harbour master who gave us free rein to paint around the harbour, and also to the Commandant of the yacht club for agreeing that artists could use their facilities in case of bad weather.

 

Thank you also to Lynne Peets, Brixham artist and owner of Colours of Brixham, and Jill Regan, Chair of Brixham Town Council and mayor for agreeing to judge this most difficult competition.

 

Congratulations to our own Jeff Outterside who won second prize. 

The first prize went to London artist Andrew Horrod, and very well deserved.

And well done to little George Vaz in the youth category- I’m sure he’ll go far.
