Continuing our support for such local groups through this strange year
In the current circumstances many of our local interest groups are unfortunately unable to hold meetings or exhibitions that we can physically attend. Another one of these is Croydon Art Society. Like many of us the Art Society is finding new ways to operate and connect to us all in these strange circumstances. One of these is their virtual version of their annual exhibition. Details of the Art Society’s activities and their virtual exhibition are below:
The Croydon Art Society is one of the oldest art societies in Britain (having been formed in 1881) and won The Artist/Leisure Painter Art Club of the Year in 2018. Art Societies and clubs are not just about painting and in these troubled timesThe Croydon Art Society has had to devise new and innovative ways to support and connect with its members. During Lockdown, the Committee were ringing round the members to see if they were OK and there have been talks and demonstrations via Zoom. This year there is going to be a ‘virtual’ Annual Exhibition in November 2020 of member’s work. For the first time, you will be able to see what a local art exhibition contains by simply going online at www.croydonartsociety.org. The Croydon Art Society has recently had a trial virtual exhibition called ‘Into the Light’ (because we all want a bit of light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel) and this has been seen by people all over the country and as far away as Tasmania.
The dates for The Croydon Art Society Annual Exhibition are: Monday 16th November to 16th January 2021.
