First Wednesday of the Month
(no meeting Jan & Aug)
7.30 pm Upstairs at The Three Swans, King Street, Frome
2020 Dates are detailed below
This is a social evening, time to sit back and relax and enjoy a conversation with like minded people. Time to voice your ideas, frustrations, successes and plans. Feel free to promote your exhibitions, make suggestions, discuss your work, form new friendships and collaborations.
Its daunting walking into a room of people you don't know but please believe you are very welcome, just take a deep breath and say hello. To get an idea of the types that come along browse the 2019 Frome Open Studios Brochure where you will find contact details for all the entrants, and a bit of information about what they do. Many regularly attend the Artists Cafe.
We have a Facebook page entitled Frome Artists Café (this is a direct link) FAC is is a discussion page, not for spam advertising although we welcome members mentioning their events, just not too much and we encourage other members to help share this information! It is really designed for Frome and surrounding area artists, there are three questions to answer and based on your answers and location you will be approved. If I feel members are abusing the space they will be deleted. And we would love to meet you in person at the cafe.
I create a monthly Frome Artists Café e-news where I am happy to feature your events, please send them to me, preferably as a jpeg file to me about two weeks before the beginning of the month. My email is: Caroline Walsh-Waring.
