The Visual Art Group’s activities encourage both traditional and contemporary interpretation of a wide variety of subject matter, from still-life, landscape and architecture, to portraiture and macro-photography. It is an active group of enthusiasts participating in the group's events, which include:
- All members receive ‘Visual Art’, the high quality magazine of the Group. This primarily focuses on the work of members of the Group and regularly features successful distinctions.
- The Group holds an annual print exhibition which is shown at various locations around the U.K., including for the duration of the Edinburgh Festival.
- The Group also operates several portfolios, both print and digital, where images are exchanged with fellow members for comment. For more details, please click on 'Postal and E-mail Portfolios' on the right.
In addition, weekends away and meetings are organised with talks and activities where members can meet one another and discuss topics of common interest. These continue to be developed in conjunction with the Society’s regions and other Special Interest Groups, such as the weekend in Torquay, November 2012, co-ordinated with the South West Region and the Travel Group. We believe this is the way forward for the Group and the Society!
We are also very keen to set up Visual Art sub-groups around the country so that members can be sure that events that are not too far for them to travel. We have a flourishing South West Visual Art Group, the new Rollright Visual Art Group held it's first meeting on the 30th May 2015 and others are in the pipeline.
