Ongar Art Society

FullSizeRender 1The Ongar Art Society was founded over 40 years ago, during which time it has developed into a growing progressive society. We now have a current membership of over 50. Our members have a wide range of artistic experience and backgrounds. You don’t have to be an artist to join. We welcome anyone interested in art.  
Monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at High Ongar Village Hall, Mill Lane, High Ongar, CM5 9RN, between 8pm and 10pm. At the meetings we enjoy a variety of events which are organised by our programme manager artist Susan Keeble. The programme includes talks and demonstrations. Topics are chosen to produce a varied programme to provide as much interest as possible. We welcome visitors and the entrance fee is £4.
We also organise one day art workshops, museum and exhibition visits, plus sketching days and competitions. An important event in our year is the Summer Exhibition and recently a Winter Art Sale. These events provide an opportunity for members to exhibit and sell their art work.  Society members are underway with the arrangements for this years Summer Exhibition which will be held at the Budworth Hall, High Street, Ongar CM5 9JG.
Our aim this year is to build on last years success. There is an entrance fee of 50p for adults and no charge for children.  The exhibition opens at 10am on Saturday 10th June and 10.30am on Sunday 11th June and closes at 5pm both days.
The annual subscription is £30 and entitles you to free entrance to the monthly meetings and opportunities to join other members at workshops, gallery visits and sketching days. For full details go to www.ongarartsociety.moonfruit.com
