Membership And About Musselburgh Art Club Post

The club was formed in 1969 and we have our own premises at Bridge Street in Musselburgh, just across the road from the main entrance to the Brunton Hall. We rent our building from East Lothian Council, and have the advantage of having access at any time, unlike many other clubs. 

 SC004305 Registered charity from 20 May 1971

We welcome new members however the membership has increased in recent years so it may be that a waiting list be used as required.

If you are thinking about membership, you can come along two or three times before joining to see the premises and facilities. You can bring some work along if you like, or just have a cup of coffee and a chat.

About the club

We are a small, friendly club of amateur artists. We are always happy to welcome kindred spirits of all abilities!

Membership fees for the club are currently £85 a year, running from September to August. New members pay a pro-rata amount. Your membership fee covers rent, utility bills and various other expenses.

For a nominal amount, members can also have a key to the clubhouse, so you can have access at any time you like, 7 days a week.

Club activities
Members gather at the clubhouse mainly on weekday mornings, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. You can choose to draw, paint etc. or chat and drink coffee; some members bring their lunch with them if they feel like staying into the afternoon.

We occasionally arrange tutorials and critic nights when they are affordable. We do not have regular tuition, but members are always willing to give advice to each other (if wanted)!

Musselburgh Art Club is supported by a grant from East Lothian Council.

The club has many resources for use by members,

including:

An extensive library of art books and DVDs
A mount cutter for framing
Advice when asked for!

An annual exhibition in Musselburgh Old Town Hall, which takes place in August
Arrangements to hang paintings in the Tide Cafe on Portobello Promenade, and in the new surgery complex beside Tesco in Musselburgh.

East Lothian Inspiration for September 2017

Do you need some Musselburgh Artistic inspiration?

Well here are a few pictures- Feel free to paint them just share them via social media and also with the club so we can post onto this page!

Sept 2017

I have updated one of the clubs web pages that have some East Lothian Photos taken by Tanya my wife and also myself over the last months. The Page can be found below but this post contains the same information. So I have added some photos from Dunbar, Ocean Terminal In Leith and Arthur Seat where I was painting plein-air. Arthur Seat was a great start to a Saturday morning and I stayed next to the car but Tanya headed to the top and was rewarded with some great photos. Of course Edinburgh City is the normal focus but I stayed with East Lothian direction and I focused on the old Portobello high School. It seems a strange view with no Cockenzie Power Station and now no Portobello High School where I was a pupil many moons ago. Change of the landscape over time it makes me realise when I can its time to paint.

A little reminder if anyone would like to paint one of the images we would love to see the result. Applies to the gallery on this page only. All other images are copyright to the photographer and are not to be published on the internet without written permission from the club All images remain copyright to the photographer.

Fairwell Dennis Duncan and a day out at the 3 harbors exhibition in Port Seton and Cockenzie 

I was asked to post a fairwell message to MAC club member Dennis Duncan who has decided to move away from Scotland. Unfortunately I was not able to meet Dennis at the club but I can say you have a great eye for Still Life paintings that you kindly let us post on to the website. Kenny Taylor in particular will miss you and we all wish you best wishes down south.

Last week there was a few members who visited the 3harbours.co.uk exhibition in Cockenzie, Port Seton and Prestonpans. The feedback was good and it looks like the visitors had a good day out.  If anyone had any further photos please send them to me and I will add to this post.
