Events & Demonstrations

Herne Bay Arts Group hold a couple of exhibitions each year to raise the profile of the Art Group, and perhaps to sell a few paintings too. The group also has a small art show on the Herne Bay seafront in the summer. These are perfect to help raise the profile of art in Herne Bay and are open for all members to take part in.


An annual exhibition is held during the Herne Bay Festival week at the Baptist Church in the High Street, for which members can submit up to 4 paintings. A hanging fee is charged and commission of 10% is taken for all artworks sold.

A judge is appointed to assess the paintings, with cups and certificates awarded to the winners in each category.


Exhibitions are also staged in spring and winter at venues such as Beach Creative (opposite the main car park), or The Horse Bridge Gallery in Whitstable. There are also opportunities to exhibit on the seafront by the entrance to the pier, on Sundays and Bank Holidays during the summer (subject to favourable weather!)
