A supportive creative community for visual arts and artists since 1927



ASOC is a community of approximately 300 members who have been meeting to share their ideas, enthusiasm and inspiration since 1927 – that is an awful lot of knowledge and experience to share.

We meet on a monthly basis, organise a Summer Art Experience (a week of art under expert tuition), as well as exhibitions, regular workgroups and workshops throughout the year which are open to members and non-members.

Come along as a guest, or join us – we are a friendly society, always ready to welcome new members. ASOC offers local and distant membership – for those too far away to attend regular meetings and events but want to join in our annual events.
