IT’S not quite as easy being an artist in the new city as it was 12 months ago – when people feel the pinch, they don’t have as much to splash on luxuries, so selling your wares as a creative sort, isn’t quite as easy.
And then there is the loss of the AIM Gallery, which has left a huge hole with its departure from thecentre:mk
But though the avenues to show work has decreased, the passion and flair of the artists hasn’t.
Milton Keynes Society of Artists are a perfect example.
The society boasts professionals and amateurs, encompasses all media and members from 13 years and above.
Regular painting days and social events go alongside the exhibitions, but the MKSA does have a permanent exhibition space too, at Camphill in Willen.
Work by members of the group is changed at quarterly intervals, and if you’ve not visited the hub yet, we have it on good authority that it is a perfect place to grab a coffee or a spot of lunch!
If you would like to find out more about MKSA, the society meets on the last Wednesday of every month, at the Westcroft Meeting Place at 7.30pm. Non members are welcome to pop their heads around the door.
