Sinclair Webster, chair of Guildford Art Society, said: “It is work from the whole membership and the standard is incredibly high.

“We have exhibited at West Horsley Place since 2018 but It is the first time we have used Place Farm Barn since it was converted into an arts centre”.

Sinclair added: “The exhibition was opened by Alistair Burtenshaw, the director of the Watts Gallery Trust since 2017. He has overseen the organisation’s transition to an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and the growth of the Artist’s Studio Museum Network that Watts Gallery Trust established and manages.”

The society was founded in 1926 by members of the Abbotswood Sketching Club, formed in 1923. Its objects were “The promotion of the study of all branches of Fine Art in the town and its neighbourhood, the association together of those who practice the different branches of art, in order that they shall encourage and assist one another, and become acquainted with one another’s efforts.”

Unconditional love by Fiona Champion.

Ever enthusiastic about the society, Sinclair said: “Currently we have 227 members with two informal art groups that meet weekly plus a full programme of talks, demonstrations and workshops, kept going during the two lockdowns on line in association with Woking Art Society.

“The lockdowns have been the only interruptions to these activities except for World War II.”
