Lytham St Annes Art Society is a registered charity and consequently has to be governed
by a Board of Trustees and by a set of Rules. The Board of Trustees, otherwise known
as the Society’s Officers and Committee are elected annually at the Annual General
Meeting (AGM) each year by the members present. The Committee is headed by the President
of the Society who is in office for one year, and who is replaced by the President
Elect at the following AGM.
The Society has been in existence since 1912, and more about its history can be found
on the “About Us” page. Of course the history of any organisation would not be complete
without its list of Past Presidents.
The Society prides itself on being an active group of mixed ability artists. We have
a very extensive diary of workshops, events and exhibitions. Our workshops cover
a large array of activities for both beginners and experienced artists.
The society has capacity for upto 440 members. Once this number is reached the membership
is closed and a waiting list is opened. We believe that this number allows workshops
to function happily without being too crowded.
Over the years we have seen several new members join the society and their dedication
and contributions have been much welcomed. Everyone is encouraged what ever their
skills to exhibit their art/crafts in our studio and other exhibitions which are
open to the public.
Requests for membership should be addressed to our Membership Secretary Judy Taylor,
or by applying in writing to Lytham St Annes Art Society, The Studio, Haven Road,
Lytham, Lancashire, FY8 5EG. New applicants will be advised if there is a waiting
list on receiving applications. Thank you to those who continue to support the society
by promptly renewing their subscriptions.
