Art by St Neots Art Group
Established in the late 1970s by a group of six in a garden shed known as ‘The Paintbox’,
St Neots Art Group has grown to be a thriving club of keen artists using a variety of media.
The group was originally led by a well-known local artist, the late Mrs June Smith.
Membership grew steadily and now is between thirty and forty local artists. The shed soon
had to be replaced with various other meeting places including local schools and church
The group holds either annual or bi-annual exhibitions; in recent times these have been in
the United Reformed Church but in August they will be holding their Summer Exhibition at
Art & Soul, in the centre of St Neots.
‘We are delighted to be exhibiting at Art and Soul’ said Lesley Cartwright.
The work is very varied, ranging from traditional watercolours to portraits and abstracts in
various media. Some of the work will be sculptures and most will be wall hung.
