Summer Exhibition

June 22, 2019


This was our first exhibition since the move from Windsor Street and was held in June at The Orangery, at Squires Garden Centre in Halliford Road over a weekend. The exhibition was staged to make locals aware of our community and it’s new base in Sunbury at the Riverside Arts Centre. We hope they liked what they saw and come and join us at one our three weekly sessions or our two monthly Saturday sessions. We had a display of Portrait and Life studies to show what we do.
The venue proved popular with artists who liked the good light, high ceiling and amount of wall space allowing more and larger artworks to be hung. We had over 120 quality artworks on show and the hanging was professional and impressive.

Barrie Novell was a much loved model known to many of our artists who died shortly before the  exhibition. A part of the space was dedicated to Barrie with pictures of him from all of our sessions.

The exhibits were a mixture of priced and not for sale items. Visitors interested in a particular picture or artist are invited to leave details so the artist can contact them after the event.

Oasis Cafe in the Falkland Islands

February 23, 2017


Chertsey Artists members have helped contribute to the renovation of the The Oasis Cafe at RAF Mount Pleasant on the Falkland Islands. This is a facility for service personnel and is a CESSAC (Church of England Soldiers, Sailors, & Airmen’s Charity) Centre. A key driving force behind this project is Shannon Saise-Marshall who until fairly recently shared a studio at Chertsey Artists with her daughter Anabel. Military volunteers on site renovated the premises and Chertsey Artists members provided works of art to add to the ambiance. Fourteen works of art from our members now hang in the Oasis Cafe. Those members who contributed to this project were.

  • Nicky Browne
  • Pam Beck
  • Reeta Sarkar
  • Dodi Shariff
  • Meryl Somper
  • Ann Willson
