Welcome to the Solent Art Society

We are a group of artists interested in painting and drawing in various media. Our members cover a wide range of experience and are drawn from the Hill Head/Fareham/Gosport area. We meet most Wednesday evenings during term–time at the Lee–on–the–Solent Community Association. We paint or draw together almost every week on subjects of our own choosing, based upon the theme for the term or on ideas taken from a visiting demonstrator. We hold periodic exhibitions and go on outings to places of artistic interest. We have lots of fun and help is always at hand from our resident professional artist.

If you think you might be interested in joining us, please see the foot of the About page.

As Covid–19 restrictions change, and some members remain shielded, we use the website to keep members aware of our activies either in person at weekly meetings, or virtually, via zoom. Please view the latest information HERE.

Diary Dates

We are beginning to prepare for our annual exhibition of the Hampshire Open Studios event from 20th August to 29th August incl. at the Royal British Legion, High Street, Lee–on–the–Solent. We'd love to welcome you there!


In March 2021, we were excited to hear that one of our members, Ian Withall, was selected to take part in the second exhibition produced by Grayson Perry, arising from his Art Club, shown on Channel 4 in the Spring. Ian's painting was selected by guest Nigella Lawson and is currently on display with all the other selected works at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and will remain there until the exhibition ends on 4 September 2022.
