Ayr Art Circle & Ayr Sketch Club - Members? Work

For the 2010 programme, two local art groups, Ayr Art Circle & Ayr Sketch Club, will present their exhibitions for the Easter period in April.

Ayr Art Circle was formed in 1944 and is unique among local clubs in owning its own premises. Members paint in different media and have varied styles from careful watercolours to bold acrylic abstracts. Most find that attending the club stimulates them to paint regularly, revisiting their ideas and developing work in a friendly and creative environment.

Ayr Sketch Club, founded in 1901, continues to maintain the spirit of its founding and early artist members. It is a lively group in which professional, amateur and lay members contribute to the creative activities incorporated in the annual syllabus. The most important event of the season is the annual exhibition in the Maclaurin Galleries, where works by well-known artists are on display alongside those of aspiring artists, thus continuing the tradition of the club in the promotion of the Fine Arts.
