    Although we are very fortunate to have an excellent cohort of Artists who supported us at the last show in 2019 we are also very keen to invite in those artists from Danbury and the surrounding area who have not exhibited with us before - we really would welcome their unique contribution to this special Danbury event.   If you, or someone you know, might be interested in finding out more then please do just Register your interest by clicking on the Link below.

    You will be emailed on 1st July 2022 with the full details and the entry form.   We very much hope to hear from you.

    Like all events the Danbury Art Show is only possible due to the volunteers who come forward to help with hanging paintings, stewarding the exhibition, setting out the boards, and many other tasks that must be done to make the show a success.   If you have a few hours to give over the weekend of the show, or just want to offer general help on an ad hoc basis then please do make contact at the Link above.
