Welcome to the Portland Artists' Society web site.
We are Portland's main artists' organisation, run by artists for artists. That is, artists who paint or draw, whether this be with oils, acrylics, watercolours, pencils, pens, pastels or charcoal.
We run weekly meetings, "Paint Out Days", visits to galleries, educational activities, workshops with visiting artists and host exhibitions of members work.
Our members have the use of a good-sized, well-lit, work studio, as well as equipment such as easels, light box etc.
"The Arts Company", of which PAS is a member group, affords our members a gallery and shopfront to exhibit and sell their work in Julia Street in the centre of Portland.
Betty Trewavis in the Studio Gallery, where our work is on sale.
In short the PAS provide everything an artist needs to assist them on their road.
