Every Spring, usually in April, the club has its Annual Exhibition. Every club member can enter, and our aim is to have every member able to have at least one piece of work on show. Entry is always subject to the conditions which ensure that the quality of the exhibition is maintained, but the club is amateur and has historically achieved its ambitions for member participation. There is only a very modest charge for entering the Annual Exhibition. The club retains 10% of the sale price of each item, which is then donated to the Lillie Art Gallery.
Since longer than can be remembered the Annual Exhibition has been held at The Lillie Art Gallery in Milngavie. The exhibition is over four weeks and the club is indebted to the gallery staff for their skill in hanging the work, mainly paintings but also including ceramic and textiles. The Lillie Art Gallery has an impressive permanent collection, and holds exhibitions throughout the year displaying both parts of its own colletion and also special exhibitions which attract interest from near and far.
Many now famous artists began their career at our annual exhibition. We hope that others will follow.
