Art: Ilkley Art Club

Article Index



We are hoping to re-start in September. In the meantime, we are having a coffee morning and get together at the Clarke Foley, on Monday the 24th May, at 10.30am. The cafe is open to buy a tea or coffee. We hope you can come and join us, as a previous or future art club member.

The Ilkley Art Club, which was founded in 1909, will be meeting at a new time, hopefully, in September 21, on a Wednesday afternoons, from 12.45-2.45pm, at the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunnliffe Road, Ilkley.

The Club welcomes as members people of any age who have an interest in art, whatever their level of technical competence. The current membership includes practising artists, both amateur and professional, as well as those who are interested in learning and developing skills. It is not a ‘teaching club’ or an ‘art course’ but members working together in practical sessions.

The Club organises lectures on a range of topics. Non-members can attend these lectures, the fee being £5 per visit. Details of the current lecture programme and practical sessions  are given below.

You are welcome to come along on any of our Wednesday's for a free "taster" session.

The Club also holds exhibitions of members work. This year's main exhibition will be held from 24th October 2019 to 14th January 2020 in the Clarke Foley Centre.

The annual subscription may change to pay as you go, depending on the Clarke foley.
