Driffield Art Club
Club, founded 1965
Driffield Art Club currently has over 130 members from Driffield and the surrounding area within the East Riding.
Driffield Art Club members meet monthly on the third Monday of every month (except August) at Westgarth Community Centre, Mill Street, Driffield.
The meetings consist of demonstrations on a wide variety of styles and media; lectures on artists and developments in art, and the club endeavours to hold one meeting during the year when a practising artist appraises Driffield Art Club members’ work.
Anyone with an interest in art, practising or not, is most welcome to come to a meeting as a visitor before joining Driffield Art Club.
Fees are currently £25 per year. Visitors pay £7 which is credited against the annual fee if you then join Driffield Art Club within one month.
An open exhibition displaying artworks by amateur and professional artists celebrating creativity within Ferens Art Gallery’s temporary exhibition spaces.
Ed Rust of the Hornsea Art Society is presenting a talk and slideshow together with a couple of short films about the life and work of Alberto Giacometti.
Visitors are welcome at a cost of £3.00.
