Chelsea Art Society: a long history and a great future
Welcome from the President
We like to think of ourselves as London’s most friendly art society (as well as one of its oldest), and we would in normal times welcome submissions to our annual Open Exhibition from artists of any age and any background. Our aim is to encourage the practice of Fine Art in its many forms, whether sculpture, painting, printmaking or drawing, as well as offering an opportunity for artists to show and to sell their work. Despite the ongoing crisis, we all hope to be back at Chelsea Old Town Hall in June 2021. Keep checking the website for the latest news on that front.
We have seen exciting developments over the last two years which have turned us into one of London’s most vibrant and energetic art societies. We have added a new event in our annual calendar, the Sloane Stanley exhibition for members only, along with the new William Sloane Medal worth £1000 for the best work in the show. This year’s exhibition opens at 340 Kings Road on Tuesday 6th October, with the theme of ‘Chelsea Unlocked’.
Our Friends organisation is expanding rapidly and we hold parties, sketching evenings and drawing events to encourage greater participation in the Society.
Outside of exhibition time the website provides a useful link to our members’ workand individual websites. And it is easy to sign up as a Friend of Chelsea Art Society by following the link on the Friends’ page.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our shows very soon, whether as an exhibitor or as a visitor, and – who knows? – perhaps even as a collector!
With best wishes for your health and happiness in these anxious times,
