MEMBERS NOTICE BOARD -

Due to the current pandemic, all meetings are cancelled until further notice.  Why not keep up to date with our Facebook page and enjoy the opportunity to view members works of art. 
Main thing is, stay safe and enjoy your art.

  • You are welcome to join us on our outside painting sessions and meet up with fellow members.  We are meeting as friends and NOT as art circle members due to membership being suspended in August and won't be renewed until we are able to hold inside meetings again.  The club doesn't have insurance so everyone meets at their own risk and are asked to conform to government restrictions.   The friends who are attending decide on the following week's venue etc.  For more details, email brighouseartcircle@yahoo.co.uk
