Welcome to the Uckfield Art Group's website. Our ethos is based on our motto - ‘Painting for Pleasure'.
We are an informal group of around 25 regular members who meet regularly to enjoy and develop our art. There are members from all abilities and ages (16+). We celebrate successes and although we have no formal tutor we use the expertise within the group to help those who need advice or encouragement.
The group meets every Tuesday from 7-9pm in Uckfield's Luxford Centre, at the top of the Luxford Carpark, just off Uckfield High Street. Members bring their own supplies and work on their own painting and drawing projects in the convivial and supportive atmosphere. We hold two main exhibitions per year to showcase our work.
In 2023 our summer exhibition is on Saturday, June 3 with the winter show coming up in November.
For more details about the exhibitions see the Notices and Contacts page.
Big Picture projects
We have undertaken Big Picture projects where we take a well-known painting (or photo) and divide it up into sections. Members recreate each section on a larger scale and then the whole picture is reassembled. Click the side arrows to see more.
The exercise enables communication in order to get the sections to match and has been enjoyed by all participants.
One of our group still life challenges was to create pictures on the theme of "The Garden Shed".
