Cookham Arts Club

The club was founded in 1941 for the study and encouragement of the arts including musical, theatrical and literary arts. Nowadays the club solely participates in the visual arts - painting and drawing in both traditional and modern styles.


Outing to Gloucestershire 2011

We offer a wide range of activities – there are usually three or four functions each month. The monthly meetings include illustrated lectures and painting demonstrations and are held on the third Thursday at Cookham Parish Centre. There are weekly Tuesday afternoon workshop sessions, held at Cookham Dean Village Hall, six or seven outdoor painting expeditions and all day workshops four times a year. In addition there are coach outings to the major London exhibitions and to stately homes and gardens. There are social events such as summer garden parties and Christmas socials.


70th Anniversary party

The Club’s main event in the year is the Annual Art Exhibition which attracts a wide entry from both members and non-members. All works go before a selection committee. Members have the privilege of having at least one of their entries accepted. The exhibition is of a high standard, there is a very good sales record and visitors come from a wide area. Pottery, ceramics, wood carvings and pewter objects are also entered for sale. We also have a weekend exhibition and screen sale in the spring each year. Modern art, as well as more traditional work, is displayed.
