Welcome to Ludlow Art Society

We are a group of artists based all over the "Marches" area around Ludlow, and have been in existence since 1946. Our members range from professional artists in painting, sculpture, textiles, installations, ceramics and digital art, to amateurs and beginners just starting out. Whatever your current level of skill, you are warmly welcomed to join us.  Our aim is to facilitate and further our own individual artistic development.  Membership is £16 per year and students can join for a reduced subscription of £5. Please see the membership form here for details of how to join (opens in a new window).

Our president is Dr. Peter Bishop.  You  can read more about him and other committee members here.

The society is well known for the high quality and eclectic mix of styles, subjects and mediums in our twice yearly exhibitions, which are held in spring and late summer.  Many of our supporters return regularly, year after year, to follow favourite artists and buy new works which are frequently very competitively priced.

Members are entitled to show their work at our exhibitions, either for sale or not. Submission fees are low and are based on the size of work entered (recent submission fees can be found on the exhibition entry form).  Works are not selected.  Every member is entitled to enter their work. The society takes a 20% commission on sales.  Exhibitors are expected where possible to act as stewards during the course of the exhibition, generally for half a day, working in pairs.

As well as our exhibitions we have monthly evening meetings, usually at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of the month, at Ludlow Assembly Rooms.  Visiting speakers talk on art based themes and there are demonstrations by selected artists.  Admission to evening meetings is £3 for members, £6 for non-members and £1 for students.

Workshops, tutored by leading artists, are arranged from time to time and may be held in Ludlow or at one of the many excellent village halls in the area.  Workshops are priced competitively depending on the artist’s fees.

In the summer months outdoor painting is encouraged by monthly planned outings to interesting local spots, selected bearing in mind the availability of refreshments & facilities.  There is no cost to attend (except car parking or specific event charges where these apply).  Just turn up on the day.
