There has been an artists' group in Rochdale for 80 years and this group; Rochdale Artists was formed in 1987. It's objectives are to advance the education of anyone living or working in the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale or the surounding area, particularly in the field of the visual arts. The group welcomes new members of any experience and ability and currently includes members ranging from professionals to beginners.
The group meets on Tuesday evenings at the Castleton Community Centre on Manchester Road. A full programme of events includes guest speakers and demonstrations. You can see our most recent events on our Newsletter page. Most months there is a theme linked in some way to the demonstration with an appraisal of members' work later in the month.
The group holds annual exhibitions within the area at places such as Holingworth Lake Visitors Centre and Littleborough Coach House, as well as other venues. Members may submit up to three works in these exhibitions.
