founded in 1927 
 
Main Gallery 
Situated in Norway Square, amongst the narrow streets of former fishermen's cottages in Virgin Street, Teetotal Street, or Salubrious Place, this big, light, airy gallery was once the main body of the former Mariners Church. 
 
It houses the society's annual exhibitions of paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour, of prints from etchings or lino cuts and of woodcarvings and sculptures. 
There are three main exhibitions of members work with new submissions for the Spring, Summer and Autumn shows. There are also separate exhibitions by invited artists interleaved between the main exhibitions. Please look at our 2013 programme for dates. 
 
Membership 
The society at present has 70 members. Membership is by selection. 
 
The society aims to show a wide range of styles of high professional standard. Evidence of some local connection is looked for.
