The Festival will be held in Amersham Old Town and will showcase a wide variety of different painting styles and mediums. Last year, we had over 250 exhibition pieces on show and had the most successful & well attended exhibition so far with over £4500 worth of art sold. We very much hope that this year we will be able to surpass that figure!

Are you interested in Art and have a passion for all things Watercolour?……Then we want to hear from you!

Amersham Festival of Art has been as successful as ever! With roughly 300 pieces of Art being displayed in the week long event, it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the extraordinary talents of our local artists.

Following some changes this year, we are on the hunt for some enthusiastic art lovers to join the Amersham Festival of Art Committee.

We are hoping to broaden the scope of the event to appeal to all types of artists from a variety of artistic backgrounds. The Organising Committee is made up of volunteers and helps to put on the Festival as well as manage the administrative side of the event.

The 38th Festival of Art is being held this year from Saturday 21st October 2017 to Sunday 29th October 2017, with the first planning meeting being held in late April 2017.
