After Covid prevented our exhibition from taking place last year at our usual venue, Brentwood Library, we are delighted to return this November with a wonderful display of members' artwork. There is nothing ordinary about the work our members produce and the work on display demonstrates a wide range of media and approaches and their willingness to experiment with different materials and ideas. We welcomed Brentwood Theatre Manager, Ian Southgate to open the exhibition, which runs until Saturday 27th November. Most artwork is for sale and there are also greetings cards on this site that can be purchased, many featuring pictures in the exhibition.

In this year's exhibition, we celebrate the work of Michael Mayo, who passed away earlier this year. Michael was a long time member of Brentwood Art Society and immersed himself in the activities of the group, attending the weekly sessions, the weekend trips away and in the past was the Society's treasurer. Michael was exceptionally skilled in both watercolours and oils and we are grateful to his wife Anne for lending two of his paintings for this exhibition. The one here is entitled, "Rupit, Spain".
