Etwall Gallery
Etwall Art Group

Art Group photo March 2014The Etwall Art Group has been in existence since 1972 when a small group of local artists got together to show their paintings at the Etwall Well Dressings.

The main event each year is the organisation of the Well Dressing Exhibition which has continued until the present day, coming up now for 43 years. 

There are painting demonstrations given by well-known artists each month. Also workshops and outings are organised throughout the year.

The Etwall Art Group has been held in various venues over the years and is now held in the Frank Wickham Hall in Etwall. There are at present forty members with a large waiting list.   The group meets weekly to paint and generate ideas, also to encourage each other, but mostly to meet up and have fun.  Visitors are welcome to join us at our monthly art demonstrations, given by professional well known artists.  Details of the dates are given in the yearly events calendar, or by telephoning or emailing the secretary.
