Bursledon Art Society - run by artists for artists

Welcome. The Bursledon Art Society was formed 40 years ago and began with a small art exhibition at the 1984 Bursledon Summer Regatta. From this successful art show an annual exhibition was born to showcase the work of the many talented artists throughout this region. It has proven to be an ever growing mix of ecclectic artwork, craft and sculpture.

Back for our big 40th year anniversary, this year's art show will take place over the last weekend November 2024 (TBC). Once again we will show exciting works from local and invited artists. Read more on our exhibitions page and visit our gallery page to see photos taken during the previous shows. If you'd like to be invited to the 2023 private view please get in touch.

About the Bursledon Art Society

Bursledon Art Society was formed 40 years ago; the original committee members, Tom Richardson, Wendy Jelbert, Felix Neville-Toule and Bill Fanner, organised a painting exhibition during the Bursledon Regatta at the Elephant Boatyard. It was such a success and attracted so many local artists that the idea of having a larger, annual exhibition was born.

Now that Felix and Bill are no longer with us, Rosalind Jelbert-Ingram has now joined us making it such a wonderfully successful annual Winter event. It is a focal point for invited and local artists and crafters, to show off their talents in painting, pottery, jewellery and sculpture. If you would like to exhibit, please get in touch.

The 2023 Winter art show, was held at Bursledon Village Hall, Long Lane, Bursledon, Southampton, Hampshire SO31 8BZ and we were excited to have some talented new artists on board showing their work alongside our ever popular revisiting artists. There was live demonstration by Wendy Jelbert and Jamie Sinclair over the weekend and we had our popular charity art raffle with proceeds going to Macmillan Nurses. The show ran on 25th and 26th November, 10am to 4pm.
