The New Forest Art Society is one of the leading Art Societies in the New Forest.
It is a non profit making society that depends on the subscriptions - and the enthusiasm, generosity and hard work of its members.
Its main objective is to promote the interests of its members in painting and the kindred arts. Whether your interest is confined to the appreciation of art or you wish for practical involvement in the various mediums you will meet people with similar interests at our meetings.
The society normally operates in, or around, Lyndhurst but members come from all parts of the New Forest and beyond.


NEXT EVENT: Wednesday 15 October 2014
Critique with John Edwards - Please bring one picture
All meetings take place in the Pine room of the Lyndhurst Community Centre unless otherwise specified. The Lyndhurst Community Centre is off the main car park along side the High Street in Lyndhurst, Hampshire. Meetings start at 7:30.

Summer Exhibition August - 11th to 17th August 2014

Although most of our members live in the New Forest, our exhibition is by no means limited to landscape painting. We have seascapes, still life, portraits and life drawing, animal studies and abstracts. Sometimes we have sculpture, woodcarving and ceramics, depending on the membership in any given year. At present we allow our members to hang three paintings, also three miniatures, four unframed mounted pictures (portfolios). 3D work is also accepted. There is no hanging committee and we do not select. As long as pictures are entered according to the rules and space permits, then each member will have their pictures hung. The Exhibition Director has the final say.

The Summer Exhibition preview evening is one of the highlights of the year when members gather with friends and other invited guests to view the paintings on sale, vote for their favourite on the night and discuss the works over a glass of wine.
