2022 despite all efforts a suitable date for our
Annual Exhibition
could not be found at our usual venue the
De La Warr Pavilion Studio
this was due due to a backlog of cancelled events during the Lockdown.
Not to be denied the chance for our Members to Exhibit and Sell, the Exhibition co-ordinator managed to find, not ONE but TWO dates at The STADE HALL in Hastings.
An Exciting opportunity for us
This venue has proved very successful for Art exhibitions in the past.

The First Exhibition was from 17th to 22nd May
The second Exhibition 25th to 30th October
We wish every one good luck at this exciting new venue,
Get Painting.

We have secured the August Bank Holiday for an exhibition back at the De La Warr for 2023
