MEMBERSHIP & SUBSCRIPTIONS

Pirbright Art Club currently has a membership of around 60 artists - now spread over 3 groups. Membership is open to all levels. Keen beginners and experienced artists are welcome.

In September 2021, Pirbright Art Club re-opened for 'live' sessions after many months of Lockdown, operating under new times and a new schedule. We had a meeting for each group in July, when we opened 'live' but still adhered to tight Covid restrictions until these eased after July 19th.

 

There were no meetings in August but a series of Outdoor Painting Days were scheduled for this month and Pirbright Art Club members had first option to book on to these.

 

Membership was renewed at the end of August and club meetings started up again in September. The annual subscription is £85 for each group. This covers Public Liability Insurance, hire of Lord Pirbright's Hall and automatic entry for all members* to our Annual Exhibition in December (including hire of premises for the Exhibition weekend; advertising; invitations and publicity etc.) and our outdoor Summer Exhibitions. No commission is taken by PAC for paintings sold.  

Annual subscriptions also cover Facebook publicity for our events and exhibitions, as well as the maintenance of this website.

 

If you join more than one PAC group, you pay a reduced subscription for the second group (£65), as your exhibition fees are already paid. 

 

See details and check for updates on our MEETINGS page. A limited amount of places are available now for new members.

Please contact Maggie Read if you are interested in joining.

Tutored Painting Meetings: Members buy a PAC Voucher Card to be stamped at each group meeting they attend. Cards are £45 for 5 x sessions and may be used at any time - they are not restricted to the current art club year. 

*Members must normally attend at least 4 sessions in the previous year to be eligible for entry to the Annual Exhibition. New members should have attended 2 of the 3 Autumn meetings to enter the December exhibition. Covid restrictions and lockdown mean that  rule will be waived for our 2021 exhibition in December.
