Bray Artists’ Circle has been providing opportunities for local artists to develop their artistic talent since 2003. The members range from artists who have been painting for many years, to others who have taken it up more recently as a hobby. A cross-section of styles and media preferences from oils to watercolour, acrylics to pastels is displayed within the group. While there is no formal teaching, more experienced artists are willing to give advice as members work on their own subject preferences in a relaxed atmosphere.
Workshops led by professional artists are organised annually. Trips to art galleries such as the National Gallery have also been organised for members. Some members have also travelled to France, Spain and Italy for painting workshops.
The group meet throughout the year on Monday evenings for two hours in St. Cronan’s B.N.S., Bray. At present there are approximately 25 members many of which have successfully sold their work in a variety of exhibitions. The past twelve months have been particularly challenging as the Covid 19 pandemic has prevented us from meeting, but we look forward to a time when we can once again get together.
This exhibition includes a selection of work in oils, watercolour, acrylic and pastel by our members, all of whom have their very individual styles.
