Herne Bay Arts Group

Herne Bay Arts Group was formed in 1957 and its first President was Augustus John, one of the county's finest painters. The aims of the group are to encourage new and existing members in all branches of Art and to organise activities to that end. Regular events at the First Over 60's Club, William Street, Herne Bay, include evening meetings on the 1st Friday of each month, with demonstrations by professional artists in March, May, June, September and October (Visitors welcome from 7.30-9.30pm); a studio workshop every Tuesday; an AGM in April and Social Evening in April. There is a Spring indoor painting exhibition in April and an Annual Exhibition in August, both at the United Church Halls, High Street, Herne Bay. There are also Al fresco exhibitions on Herne Bay seafront from May to September (weather permitting) and outdoor painting days organised twice a year. Membership is limited to Herne Bay residents.
