Barnet Guild of Artists is an active association of amateur and professional artists.
Founded in 1948 to provide facilities for the practice of the visual arts, and to encourage the appreciation and understanding of them, it continues to offer a valuable focus for the activities of many local artists.
The Guild is especially fortunate in having its own studio as a base for its activities.
The studio is equipped with easels and tables for practical work and is also used for meetings and socials. In summer, the pleasant rural surroundings offer the option of working outside, direct from nature. At other times there are materials for still life, and a small but growing library of art books, magazines, and videos provides further ideas and inspiration. Groups of members meet to paint at the studio every weekday. It is also the venue for Saturday tutorials and life classes, and monthly demonstrations.
Held for two weeks every summer at a local church hall, this is a major showcase for members work.
The programme of monthly evening meetings includes demonstrations, criticisms, and lectures.
