BANNER Exhibition Continues

The Chelsea Art Society Open Art Exhibition 2016

16 - 20 June 2016
The Society's annual Open Art Exhibition in Chelsea is firmly established in the early summer, 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.
