Each year Ashtead Art Group holds two exhibitions for members to display their art work and sell them to visitors. These are all original works of art (no prints or copies).
The first exhibition is held at Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking for two weeks towards the end of April, early May. The second is our local summer exhibition which is held for one week at the Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall at the beginning of August. Exact dates and times are published on the home page of our website nearer the time.
