Welcome to The Arts Society Isle of Wight At Quay Arts, the evening society based in Newport. We are a member of The Arts Society, a leading global arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of societies.

We are a very friendly group who meet monthly at Quay Arts, Newport to enjoy illustrated art-based lectures. The 2019-2020 schedule has lectures planned for October and November, then from January through to June. The committee members arrange other cultural and social activities throughout the season.

We welcome new members, visitors and students and offer the opportunity for those who work during the day to join us.  Our lectures and visits are wide ranging, some traditional in content and others more challenging.  Our aim is to offer enjoyment in a convivial environment.

Please browse the Lectures and Visits section to get a flavour of what is on offer or email via the contact link on this website for further information.  Members can go to Our Society section then Documents to download forms for future visits. 

This coming season should prove an exciting one as we have a diverse range of lectures which hopefully will appeal to all.  Please note that as of January 2019 all lectures will have a new start time of 7:30pm.  Quay Arts will open at 6:00pm for drinks and supper.
