BANNER Exhibition Continues

The Chelsea Art Society Open Art Exhibition 2017

26 - 30 October 2017
The Society's annual Open Art Exhibition in Chelsea is a firmly established annual event, in its home at Chelsea Old Town Hall, where it has been for more than ten years. Between 500 and 600 paintings and sculptures are shown - selected from more than twice that number, attracting not just established artists but younger ones producing more innovative work.

The majority may be professional artists but as an open exhibition, there are also works of above average quality by many non-professionals. The huge variety and the high standard of work is reflected in the number of buyers and its prominent position in the Kings Road attracts visitors from all over the world.
