The Society encourages the practice and appreciation of the visual arts for all artists throughout Somerset with its programme of exhibitions, lectures and other events.
Work by members of the Society covers the whole spectrum of styles and subjects which includes painting, sculpture, fabric and ceramics. New members are always welcome.
The Chandos Society of Artists was founded in 1961 and is based in the town of Bridgwater in Somerset. Jean Rees RWA, who was the co-founder of Bridgwater Arts Centre in 1946, was also a founder member of the Chandos Society of Artists and later became its Chairman.
We are looking forward to the events this year, it’ll be busy including trips, some workshops, on-line art challenges, en plein air painting days, a lecture and social occasions.
