Art Society Since 1910
Welcome from the President
In the short few weeks since we launched this new website, the world has turned upside down due to the arrival of the coronavirus. Among many other enforced shutdowns, Chelsea Art Society has had to postpone its activities for the foreseeable future. Consequently our annual Open Exhibition will NOT take placein 2020. We are currently booked into Chelsea Old Town Hall from 14th -21st June 2021. Details to follow in due course.
We like to think of Chelsea Art Society 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.
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 is, or rather was, planned for October 6th 2020. Stay tuned for further news. We very much hope we can still go ahead, but we cannot be certain.
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,
