14th AUGUST to 25th August 2019
Exhibition time is here and we are now taking entries for this year! As this is our 60th Anniversary we would like to make it the best ever.
Entries will be taken online using our Exhibition system which is accessed through our website.
The system will open for entries on Tuesday 11th June and will close for entries at midnight Friday 19th July.
Remember only 
FULL members are eligible to enter artwork in the exhibition.

NOTE – You must enter everything at the same time. You cannot put in a couple of pictures and then come back later to put in some more so make sure you have all of your information to hand before you start to fill in the form. 
Please check your spellings – there is nothing worse than seeing spelling mistakes on the labels and in the catalogue. There is no spell check on the system.

Stewarding is open to all members of the Society.
All exhibitors are expected to carry out stewarding duties during the exhibition and we also ask all other members who are not exhibiting, whether Full or Pals, to help us by booking in for any sessions they can cover.
You can book a session by going to the Dashboard and clicking on “Steward Registration”
You will then see the full rota with the available slots for each day. Click on the slots you wish to cover.
You will receive an automatic email confirming your bookings.
You are able to change or cancel your bookings online up until Friday 9thAugust or you can contact myself on or telephone 01789 551621.
If you need to make a change after 9th August you must contact me on the above number.
Once again we invite members to spend time as artists in residence. It is a great way to show off your work and engage with the visitors.
We need artists to cover all the sessions in both halls.
