Update on the AGM and Annual Exhibition 2021
AGM; We will be able to let all members know the agreed plans for our AGM by 3rd June. We currently aim to hold the meeting on 3rd July at North Warnborough Hall, but we do have a fallback option to hold it via Zoom - confirmation of the arrangements will be sent to all members asap along with the formal paperwork including the agenda.
OAG ANNUAL EXHIBITION 2021; This event will take place in the new Invictus Building, Robert Mays School, Odiham from Saturday 21st to Monday 23rd August. Because of the current situation we have decided against having a Private View evening just for this year. Opening times will be from 10am to 5pm each day and once again we will be selling 'off the wall' allowing buyers to take their purchases with them on the day. We will be part of Hampshire Open Studios again, as well as a local Odiham Villages Art Trail. Full details will be circulated on the promotional 'flyer' which will be sent out to members next month.

Show and promote your work with OAG
Do ensure you have got your most up to date painting on the Artists page of this website as we will be picking images from there to use on our promotion for the annual exhibition. Also Ann Grigg has done a great job with the Odiham Art Group Facebook page, so do pop images of your artwork into that too, including work in progress-the more people who see them the more impressed they will be!
