The Chandos Society of Artists

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

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.

Despite the lockdown we have been busy encouraging our members with their art. OnLine chats, demonstrations art challenges have all been well supported.

The good news is that it is highly likely that we will be hosting an exhibition in Bridgwater Arts Centre in December. Members will also have an opportunity to submit work in the Art Centre’s Open Exhibition in November.

The members’ committee has been busy formulating an exciting programme for 2021 which is the Society’s 60th anniversary.
