The Tiverton Art Society Spring Exhibition was held at The Castle Primary School, Tiverton from April 11 to April 18.
Early indications are that is was one of our more successful exhibitions for some years. So maybe only having one exhibition over a shorter period created an environment for buyers to be more urgent in their purchases.
As with previous exhibitions, the quality, styles, media and variety was simply amazing. As a Society we are very blessed to have so many talented artists as members.
We encourage all members to exhibit no matter where they are in their art journey. Being able to show your work in an exhibition helps to build an artists confidence, not matter what level they are currently at. All the better if you receive an award or sell an art work.
As a Society, we hope to build and learn from each exhibition, so that we make the next one even better.
Below is a the art works that received an award or certificate of merit. (Judging is done by professional artists who are not members of the Society).
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Pam Pebworth. Pam was a key part of the Society in its early days and is remembered with fondness.
Her funeral will be held on 1st April at 1.20pm at Torquay crematorium.
Our condolences to Pam’s family.
Intro by Stuart
I think we can all agree that Heather is an exceptional pastel artist, so her views on pastels can be considered to be very useful.
SAA Pastel review
I recently bought some SAA soft pastels in their sale, I normally use Unison ones but thought I’d give them a try. They were about a third of the price of Unisons and are harder and longer, I’ve actually found them very pleasant to use and easier to get fine lines. – Heather Strong

On Saturday October 20th 2018, a group of talented TAS artists came together at the Oak Rooms in Tiverton to hold an Autumn Art Sale.
As you will see from the photos, the range of art on display was certainly very impressive and a good mix of styles and medium.
A good day had by all, in a very atmospheric old building.
Tiverton Art Society will be holding an Autumn Art Sale in the Oak Rooms in Tiverton on the 20th October 2018.
Opening times will be from 10pm till 3pm, lots of art work, prints and cards to buy. The location also includes a tea/coffee shop.
Great time to start thinking of gifts etc.
Well last nights meeting was the Societies first ever monthly Art Challenge. Was a little worried how many entires we would get, but I need not have worried.
We had 15 entries in total, and the standard was incredibly high, but thats not surprising with the talent we have in the Society.
All members who attended the meeting were eligible to vote (one vote per member), and it was actually quite close for the two most popular paintings.
However, there can only be one winner, did have a slight panic wondering what to do if we get a tie, but I think we can ask the guest artist to select a winner in that case.
The winner was this lovely painting by Shirley Walton, well done Shirley:
