This year marks the 70th Annual Exhibition being hosted by the Bexley Art Group. The members will be showing over 150 original art-works, every day for a two-week period, from Monday 3rd August to Saturday 15th, at the Freemantle Hall, Old Bexley.
Several members of the group will also be giving demonstrations of their skills during the two week event. Visitors will be able to watch our member artists producing work in watercolours; acrylics and pastels.
The group, which was founded in 1942, has been welcoming and encouraging local artists to join them and hone their skills from that year to this, and meets most Monday evenings* at Baldwyn?s Park Church Hall, on Dartford Road.
For over 70 years they have attracted many excellent amateur artists, some of whom have gone on to exhibit their work at The Royal Academy and the Mall Gallery. Today, the group enjoys an excellent reputation among contemporary amateur art groups and works created by members can be found all over the world.
We are a very friendly group, and there are currently around 50 members; some of whom have been painting for many years, others have only recently taken up this fascinating hobby, but they all share a passion for their art and are keen to encourage each other.

*The group meets every Monday evening apart from the 1st Monday of each month, and Bank Holidays.

The Bexley Art Group was formed over 70 years ago in 1942 and the founding principles of improvement, guidance and mutual benefit stand good to this day.
We are a friendly and welcoming group, which has attracted many excellent artists over the years, some of whom have exhibited their work at The Royal Academy and the Mall Gallery. Today, we enjoy an excellent reputation among contemporary art groups and works created by our members can be found all over the world.
Some of our members have been painting for many years (our chairman, John Prichard, joined the group in 1949) others have only recently taken up painting, but we all share a passion for our art and are keen to encourage each other. We are happy to welcome budding artists, who aim to practice and improve their skills.
