MEMBERSHIP & SUBSCRIPTIONS

Pirbright Art Club currently has a membership of around 60 artists - now spread over 3 groups. Membership is open to all levels. All levels, including 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. There was a taster meeting for each group in July, when Covid restrictions relaxed and we could meet inside at last. 

 

There were no meetings in August but a series of Outdoor Painting Days were scheduled for this month and lots of Pirbright Art Club members came along to these, all at private gardens this year. 

 

Membership is renewed at the end of August and club meetings start 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) and our outdoor Summer Exhibitions. No commission is taken by th club for paintings sold. We take a small percentage from the sale of prints and cards for our funds. 

 

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 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.

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.
