Lymington Art Group

The Lymington Arts Group promotes the enjoyment and appreciation of visual arts and crafts by providing meetings, workshops and outings. We hold bi-annual exhibitions of members works, one in Lymington in the Spring and a Summer one on Milford village green in August.

Meetings take place at Lymington Centre, New Street, SO41 9BQ on the 2nd Friday of the month. The sessions are from 2.30pm till 4.30pm with a short break for refreshments. Visitors are welcome for a small fee of £3.50.

Our History

In 1979 local artist was Alison Board was holding an evening art group, when chatting to a student realised that there was a need for a sociable art evening group where people could meet together to learn about Art, share ideas, view each others works and watch presentations from Art Teachers far and wide.

The primary objective would be that there would be no required standard, all abilities catered for, easy access to venue and a warm welcome to all living in Lymington and surrounding area.

45 years on, our ethos is still the same. We welcome all who would like to share their passion and interest in all art forms to join us.

The meetings will be held in The Lymington Community Center on the 2nd Friday each month at 2.30pm. Speakers and Demonstrators booked for this year are on standby ready to visit us when allowed. All aspects of art techniques are covered together with a friendly critique of members works prior to the Annual Exhibition.  Tea and biscuits and time to speak to fellow members complete the afternoon.

Venues for the Annual Exhibition and Art on the Green have been booked giving members something to look forward too although again this is subject to Covid Rules.

The committee of Lymington Arts group are really looking forward to re opening the group soon. A warm welcome to members and visitors is assured.
