The Bishop’s Stortford Art Society Art Exhibition

Jackson Square, Bishop’s Stortford

Creativity is back in town!
It’s with great pleasure that the Bishop’s Stortford Art Society can announce it’s second exhibition of the year!

The Winter Exhibition will be held in the Community Space (next to Wilko) in Jackson Square Shopping Centre.

We are expecting up to 100 artworks on show, all paintings are by local artists including watercolours, oils, acrylics and pastels across a variety of subjects – including portraits, landscapes and local scenes, as well as abstracts. Unframed work will also be available, so there should be something to appeal to all tastes and budgets.

Why not come along not just to take a look, but to join us and make the most of the FREE Society Membership until April 2022.

Anyone over the age of 18, of any ability can join in for nothing, so what are you waiting for? We are looking forward to talking to everyone again.

Keep on creating as we could see your work on show next time!
You can also join us on the Bishop’s Stortford Art Society Facebook page, or Instagram @stortfordartsociety.
