Devon Art Society

The society is a renowned organisation that has been an intrinsic part of artistic Torbay since a group of distinguished artists founded the society in 1912, holding their first ever exhibition. Prestigious exhibitors include Royal Academicians Dame Laura Knight, Sir William Russell Flint & Louise Jopling pioneer for women’s rights and suffragettes.

Since then, members have met at our fully equipped studio in Torquay which has recently relocated to St Lukes Hall (Top of Shedden Hill)

Our inspiring programme of monthly evening demonstrations first Wednesdays of the month and all-day workshops from prominent professional artists are always well attended. These are held during the autumn, winter and spring months as are our regular Tuesday morning meetings. These sessions vary from painting from own resources, life, portrait themed still-life and several festive competitions, to occasional social gatherings critiques and trips. There’s a monthly ‘Bring & Buy’ table and extensive library of books and DVDS for loan.

During the summer months members meet up in and around the magnificent coast and countryside of South Devon. This is an ideal opportunity to gather source material in sketchbooks ready for those weather-induced indoor sessions.

The society exhibits in Spring and Summer at St. Anne’s Hall Babbacombe. Stunning paintings are displayed at each exhibition and miniatures are displayed in our Summer Exhibition.

The aims of Devon Art Society are: ‘To foster the creative visual art interests and to assist in the conceptual and technical development of its members’

We are proud of our new mentoring scheme which offers help and advice to new members and beginners.
