Bolton Arts Circle was established in 1946 to support and promote visual arts in the North West. Today we say that if you're interested in art - you'll find a warm welcome at the Art Circle. We support charities, often offering a percentage from exhibition sales and giving our time: for example, working with people to develop their interest in painting or offering paintings as auction / raffle prizes. Operation and organisation of the circle has always been done by a dedicated committee and that continues today. We produce a monthly newsletter "In Touch" for the benefit of members who don't have internet access.
