Welcome to Pilton Arts Group. We are a friendly group of some seventy members, ranging from complete beginners to experienced artists.
We are starting the new season with a varied and interesting programme of workshops that will take us through until the end of May. Do visit the "WORKSHOPS" page and register early at the studios for those of interest to you.
We shall have two major exhibitions at the Old School this year. The first of these will be North Devon Art Trek, which takes place from Saturday May 23rd until Sunday June 7th. Every member may submit up to 3 pictures for which there is a £5 entry fee for each picture to cover publicity costs. As usual, submitting artists should be prepared to help steward the exhibition. The second exhibition will be on the Green Man week-end.
Pilton Arts Group is in the enviable position of owning and occupying a former Church of England junior School, built in 1840, and situated in Pilton, an attractive and historic part of Barnstaple.
STUDIOS - LIBRARY OF ART BOOKS
Members enjoy their favourite pastime, free from domestic distractions, in warm well lit studios equipped with tables, easels, and a comprehensive library of art books.
