Guildford Art Society began in 1923 and has a current membership of 235 artists practising and non-practising, amateur and professional. The Society offers a full programme of demonstrations, talks, workshops and two exhibitions annually and is an open and social as well as creative organisation.

We were established to encourage the visual arts, painting, sculpture and crafts. To that end the Committee arranges physical and on-line demonstrations, outdoor painting days, workshops and exhibitions. Members also get together informally and organise their own events, social and craft related. 

The purpose of this open website is to present to the general public and our members, our news, information about events, to show members' artworks in our gallery and give guidance on making contact with us.

We also have an Instagram account which you can reach by clicking here.
