Annual Open Exhibition

Each year in October the Society exhibits more than 200 works of art selected from hundreds of submissions from around the country. Techniques and media range from traditional to experimental. Prizes worth more than £2,000 are awarded for drawings, prints, artworks in colour and monochrome and more, and we raise funds for the Artists General Benevolent Institution (AGBI). See entry forms and submission information.

Regional Exhibitions

We also organise members-only exhibitions in London, the southwest and elsewhere. Our venues have ranged from the Barbican Library, Tower 42 and Bankside Gallery in London, to The World of Glass in St Helens, the Meeting House Gallery in Illminster and the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil.
