About Us

There are currently over 40 members in the Group.  New members are elected following a selection process in October each year.  Further information about the application procedure is contained on the Contact page.

The Group holds twice yearly exhibitions at Saddleworth Museum Art Gallery, which is also the base for its annual general meeting.  At the start of each exhibition there is a Preview event when there is the opportunity to meet the artists.  The Home page gives details of upcoming exhibitions and the date of the Preview.

Other exhibition venues have included Gallery Oldham, the Haworth Gallery at Accrington and Millgate Arts Centre in Delph.

Current members reflect a broad spectrum of artistic backgrounds with some running classes which are open to the general public. Popular events include outdoor painting days, again open to all.

Each year a changing team of members responsible for hanging exhibitions etc. is appointed, as are the officers of the Group listed on the Contact page.
