Essex Art Club News


Our then President, Tom Coates,  opened our exhibition at the Barbican Library which brought to the end the five year period which he agreed to serve. He has made some very amusing and inspiring speeches, has selected worthy winners of the President's Prize and has shown us some of his amazing sketchbooks. Thanks Tom, and good luck for the future.  This year Tom selected Shelagh Hoolihan for the President's Prize.


Our Committee invited a well known and respected long-term member of the Club, John Tookey PS to be the next President. John accepted and is now President.

2018 AGM

After the essential business of the 2018 AGM, and cups of tea, biscuits and sociable talk, John Tookey gave a lively and very well received watercolour demonstration.



Subscriptions were due on 1st January.


Membership cards are sent out after the AGM with time needed to finalise items and get them printed, addressed and posted. If you do not receive one it may be because you forgot to pay your subscription. Please contact the Hon.Treasurer.


Due to the increased cost of insurance for three-dimensional items our insurance policy has been changed. We can no longer accept three-dimensional items for exhibition.
