About Us

Uckfield Art Group was formed in the late 60s. Our members are all ages (16+) and abilities, from beginners to experienced artists. We are a friendly and informal group, always ready to welcome new members.


We usually work on individual projects using our own choice of media and source materials.

Occasionally we have a group project where members bring something on a theme and set up a still life display to draw or paint from life. These evenings give us the opportunity to develop our artistic abilities and share techniques and expertise.

Exhibitions are held at Uckfield'sLuxford Centre twice a year where we showcase our work, (and sell a few if we're lucky!) All members are encouraged and supported, but by no means obliged, to enter work.


We believe in art for recreation, relaxation and enjoyment. Friendships made in the group last a lifetime.


Where and when do we meet?

We meet every Tuesday at the Luxford Centre, Uckfield, East Sussex TN22 1AR, from 7-9pm.   Coffee or tea is available throughout the evening (with biscuits!) at a very minimal charge to cover costs.


What does it cost?

Annual fees are £78 to cover the hall rental and expenses incurred when putting on the two art shows a year. These are collected half yearly, £36 in July and January.

The fees also cover an occasional guest demonstration or trip to see an out-of-town exhibition, such as the RA Summer Show.

We bring our own materials and equipment, though the group has some resources which are available to members at cost price.


If you would like to join us

Come along on any Tuesday evening and pay us a visit, see what we do, and have a chat. The first two ‘taster' sessions are free. We always welcome new members.
