In light of new Government regulations recently published concerning groups of people meeting outdoors being limited to a maximum of 6 people, the Council has reluctantly decided to cancel our two outdoor locations on the Summer Programme namely Godshill and Fort Victoria.

However, should members still wish to paint at these locations on the advertised dates, they are respectfully asked to strictly adhere to Covid Regulations, ie do not gather in a group of more than 6, and maintain social distancing at all times. It must be emphasised that you will be attending as an individual and not a member of IWAC.

The Military Museum venue has been cancelled outright.

At the time of writing, it looks highly likely that our Winter Programme will be viable at the Riverside, as they are Covid approved, and everything is in place for our safety up to 30 people in the Trafalgar Room and 12 in Hunnyhill.

In this very fluid situation, you will be kept informed by email and please check the website regularly for the latest news.

All the entries are in. The Exhibition will open on the 25th August, then you will be able to see all the entries. A big thank you to those artists who have been able to take part. You can download the poster by clicking on the PDF below.
