Preparation underway for exhibition this Friday

York Art Society members Lin Taylor, Julia Williams and Jill, have volunteered to help advertise the exhibition at The Medical Rooms, by donning self-styled colourful shirts which they will wear in Stonegate. Look out for them and if you would like to volunteer your time to help out on any aspect of the exhibition, please let a committee member know.
All help gratefully received.

Autumn Print Fair

York Printmakers are holding an Autumn Print Fair. 

Members will be showing a range of work for two days only at the Chapel in York Cemetery, on Sat 23rd - Sun 24th September from 10.00am - 5.00pm.

I know it’s early (for some) but you could find original and creative Christmas presents here, including earrings. 

If you're interested in having a go at printmaking, please go the the York Printmakers website for contact details:  

Exhibition Flyers

Not long now until the next exhibition on 1 September. 

Please remember to post your flyers on notice boards, in shops, libraries, dentists, doctors and to hand them out to friends and family. 

Thank you. 


Steve Garnett will be bringing his frames along to the demonstration on 21st October so members should bring cash/cheque books to take advantage of his bargains!

Appeal for more paintings for exhibition

We are a little short of paintings for the 205th Exhibition, (we expected 150, but have only 75 so far).  

Please could those members who have already submitted paintings, bring another one along, and maybe more, to put in reserve if some are sold.  We have space on the submission form for another painting, and I have made lots more artists cards to bring along. 

Note that paintings submitted to previous YAS exhibitions are allowed in this exhibition. 

There will be no hanging charge for these extra paintings.
