Lymington Palette Club

The Lymington Palette Club was founded in 1954 to promote the development and improvement of artistic knowledge and skill. We have around 50 members, selected on the basis of the talent and originality of their work, many of whom exhibit locally, nationally and internationally.

We provide a varied programme of high quality talks and events throughout the year, and an exciting annual exhibition. The 2018 Exhibition will be held at the Masonic Hall on the 6th to the 13th July.


Following some discussion, the Newsletter page has been replaced by a Bulletin Board.  Members should feel free to contribute short items of interest, ideally with a link and perhaps a picture.

1st May  
The Exhibition information and rules and the Exhibition entry form have been added to the top of the Exhibition page.

The exhibition runs from Friday 6th July to 5pm Friday 13th July 2018, at the
Masonic Hall Lymington. Opening times are from 10am to 5pm daily.

Entry forms and fees are required by Wednesday 20th June latest
, and entries received after this date will not be accepted.

Hand in date is Thursday 5th July 9.30 - 10.30 a.m.
13th May  
With effect from 25th May 2018, the Data Protection Act 1998 will be replaced by the EU ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ or ‘GDPR’ as amended by the UK Data Protection Bill.

For the Palette Club this essentially formalises the status quo:   See our GDPR policy which is also referred to on the Membership page.   For further details there are many online pages - see e.g. Wikipedia.
14th May  
Further to the GDPR, the Artists' page has been modified to only include members who have submitted pictures and "blurb" for their own page.  

All members have been asked to give permission for their work to be published on the website.
20th May  
St Barbe's Exhibition

Congratulations to the 15 members of the club whose work was chosen to be exhibited at St. Barbe's this year.

A particular mention goes to Maddy Coates who won 1st prize at St Barbe's and to Sherley Phillips whose picture was used to promote the exhibition and as a digital image inside and outside the gallery.
