Summer has begun well.

You are invited to the opening of the exhibition on Sunday 27 July from 2 pm to 5 pm.  Do join us if you can for strawberries and fizz.

It is likely to be a few days after the exhibition opens before the paintings go online at but if there is an artist who particularly interests you, please contact us and we shall e-mail details of their work as soon as we can.



Weekend Workshops
August 2014

If you are free on 16 and 17 August, why not join D.E.Johnston’s Watercolour Weekend Workshop: ‘Watercolour Landscape – Painting Foregrounds’.

Just a few spaces remain in this workshop which provides an ideal opportunity to learn from a master of watercolour. Foregrounds are generally regarded as ‘difficult’ but David Johnston will give demonstrations and help you develop techniques to interpret a variety of landscape subjects.

If you are interested in further art classes at Art OnThe Green, a new series of weekly classes will begin in September.

You can find full details of all workshops on our website or you can give us a ring or email for further information.

Kind regards,

Joan and Danny Ross
