In the 1970’s a small group of art enthusiasts met at Wallace House, then later at the Methodist Church Hall, under the name of Vale of Evesham Society of Artists.  At this time the Society had a ‘twinning’ arrangement with an art group in Melsungen in Germany.  Then in 1987 the name was changed to EVESHAM ART SOCIETY.  Once the change from afternoon meetings to monthly evening meetings was made, the membership rapidly increased. 

In 2016, the name has again changed to Vale of Evesham Art Society, as the members are now spread across The Vale, living in the surrounding villages.


Since 2000 the Society has been meeting at the Friends’ Meeting House in Cowl Street in Evesham on the third Wednesday of each month between 7.30 and 9.30 pm.  The membership averages around 60, and forms a good mix of artists of all standards.  We enjoy a varied programme of activities which include demonstrations in all media, talks, practical sessions and social events. 


Two exhibitions are held a year to promote the Society and the sale of members’ work.  Workshops are also arranged several times a year, at least one of which is tutored by a professional artist. 


A relaxed and friendly atmosphere is extended to artists, sketchers, sculptors and doodlers of all levels and to those who are just interested in art, whether painters or not.  Visitors and new members are welcome, and information on monthly meetings can be found on the Meetings page. We look forward to seeing you!
