Welcome to the Abingdon Artists website! 

Abingdon Artists is a warm and inviting community of artists who live in and around Abingdon-on-Thames.  The aim of the Society is to bring art into the community of Abingdon by encouraging art work in various media by its members and others.  We hold exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops, and provide opportunities for people to meet and discuss their artistic interests.  Our existing membership currently stands at around 60.

We aim to strike a balance by running various talks and practical workshops to provide inspiration both for those who are involved in creating art and
those who have an interest in art but don't wish to create their own work.
We invite professional speakers to deliver talks about the life and work of Artists and to do demonstrations.

To read our latest Newsletter go to the Documents page. We welcome new members from the area in and around Abingdon. If you are interested in joining, please visit the Membership section of the website.  You don’t have to be an artist to join – only to have an interest in art!

Our primary activities are as follows:

  • A monthly meeting where we have talks, demonstrations and workshops in different media and on different topics.  Meetings are usually held at the Northcourt Centre, Northcourt Road, Abingdon OX14 1NS and start at 7.30pm. Non-Members are welcome to attend for a small fee. To see our current programme click on Programme
  • Two exhibitions held in Abingdon each year (Spring and Autumn) to which each member is entitled to submit up to three works for display, and to sell cards and artwork items from the browser. For information on exhibitions click on  Exhibitions
  • Artist for the Month, where one or two members can sign up to hang their paintings in three Abingdon venues for a month.  To view the Artist for the Month click on  Artist For the Month
  • A weekly painting group, ably tutored by one of our members who is a professional artist. To find out about this activity click on Other Activities
  • A fortnightly sketching group which meets in Abingdon and finds one of Abingdon’s treasures to draw or paint! To find out about this activity click on  Other Activities
