About the group
Group background and purpose
The Chapel Allerton Artists group was established in 2019, bringing together artists working across a variety of mediums including print, weaving, illustration, digital and painting. The group meets regularly in Chapel Allerton or online with the purpose of socialising, sharing experiences, giving support and exhibiting.
The group is open to artists living or working in the Chapel Allerton area. We take a flexible approach to membership, which includes professional and semi-professional artists, regardless of any formal qualifications. You can see some of our artists work on Yorkshire Art and in person at our group exhibitions and events. If you would like to join the group, please contact email@example.com and check out our Instagram and Facebook pages.

Chapel Allerton Artists Group Exhibition 1st- 30th September 2021
Chapel Allerton and the surrounding areas are rich with artists creating diverse works from sweeping Yorkshire skies, woven woollens, whimsical watercolours, activism and applique. September sees our first public show by fourteen artists from the Chapel Allerton Artists Group. Join us for the opening night on the 1st September at Seven Arts. A selection of original works and prints by local professional and amateur artists will be on show and available for sale throughout the month.
Previous Events in 2020
Over the weekend of the 4-6th September 2020 the Chapel Allerton Artists created a Trail of Art. 18 artists who live or work in Chapel Allerton displayed pieces of their work in the windows of independent retailers. With Covid-19 preventing artists from carrying out traditional exhibitions the group wanted to do something to give artists visibility and bring the Chapel Allerton community together in a Covid-safe way. The trail of art was a great way to explore Chapel Allerton, visit local retailers and see the breadth of local creative talent.
