Gallery trips and paintaways

To give you an idea of our various trips – days, weekends, and holidays…

We organise regular day trips to galleries as well as residential city breaks and paintaway holidays, for our members and their guests. We often hire a coach, but occasionally we travel independently to allow for maximum flexibility. In recent years we’ve visited cities as far apart as Leeds, London, Bristol, Aberystwyth and Edinburgh on our gallery day and weekend excursions. And, we’ve taken our popular ‘paintaway holidays’ to beautiful places like the Lake District, Wales and Norfolk. We design our trips to combine visits to special one-off exhibitions with the established and permanent gallery collections, while offering the non-artists in our party the opportunity to explore great British cities and scenery. We always do our best to keep costs to a minimum to keep these activities accessible.

We regularly update members with details of forthcoming trips and holidays as they are planned and arranged throughout the year. Members are advised to apply promptly for all Shropshire Art Society excursions as they are extremely popular and usually sell out fast. We hope you will join us!
