About us

Ulverston Society of Artists has been established for over 50 years.   Currently, the Society has over 50 members, ranging from beginners to professional artists. 

Monthly meetings are held in the schoolroom at Bardsea. These usually take the form of a demonstration or talk by a visiting artist.  The Society also has links with local groups which meet on a weekly basis for painting, drawing and life classes.

Exhibitions of members' work are held annually in the Spring and in September. The September exhibition coincides with Ulverston Charter Week and a shorter exhibition takes place over the Dickensian Weekend  in November. 


There is also an arrangement for the exhibiting of pictures in various local establishments throughout the year.
