The club is a member of Three Towns Art Society.  It arranges an annual art exhibition which moves between the towns of Ammanford, Carmarthen and Llanelli and is an occasion when members of all three clubs unite.  The host town takes responsibility for organising and running the event at a venue of their choice.

 

 

 

On Thursday 22nd October 2015 the artist Peter Cronin came for a day of demonstrations and workshops.  In the morning Peter showed us his methods of pen and wash, which he uses most of the time when he is sketching in the landscape.  His sketchbooks were inspirational, and were admired by us all.  

 

Carmarthen Sketch Club winning paintings

On the evening of Monday November 7th ,2016  the Annual Art Exhibition was opened by the Mayor of Carmarthen, Councillor Wyn Thomas. Then the club was privileged to have as their judge of the exhibits, Sally Moss, who has worked extensively in the Galleries and Museums of Wales as Curator, Lecturer and Exhibition Officer. Sally gave a most entertains and informative speech about the value of art and the history of Carmarthen Sketch Club, which was established in 1929, and has met continuously ever since, except for the war years. She also commented on the difficulties of judging such a variety of work and talent from as many as 90 exhibits.
The Edith Lodwick Memorial Trophy for the overall winner was won by Denis Comey. The John Hutchins Memorial Trophy for a landscape in any medium was won by Margaret Lewis and the Dr John Crane Memorial Trophy for non-representational art was won by Ian Wilkins.
