We are a flourishing and very friendly member of The Arts Society.
Except during August and September The Arts Society Devizes meets every third Wednesday of the month in the beautiful surroundings of Devizes Town Hall to hear an inspiring lecture from one of the country’s leading arts experts. Topics cover a wide range of interests from architecture and china to painting and sculpture and much more besides. We also hold a separate special interest day once a year so that a topic can be examined in greater depth. In recent years we have held special interest days on jewellery, silverware and the use of light in painting.
In addition to the monthly lecture, members of the committee organise trips to exhibitions, places of historical interest and to the theatre and opera.
We are particularly passionate supporters of Young Arts giving support to projects which help children and young people to learn about the arts and to take part in hands on projects. Members of our Society are also involved in Church Recording, the setting up of Church Trails and Heritage Volunteering.
