SELECTION DAY FOR EXHIBITING MEMBERS
Due to the exceptional circumstances generated by Covid 19 and the impact it is having, we have decided to defer Selection Day until July 2021 when it is hoped that the situation will have improved. Usually, the Spring Exhibition is for all members and the Autumn Exhibition is for exhibiting members only. As the Spring Exhibition had to be cancelled this year the Autumn Exhibition it will be for all members.

2019 Autumn Exhibition at West Horsley Place

As part of ensuring the quality of the showed works, browsers were priced at £50 or above. Artists submitted two paintings each priced at £100 or above. Limited edition prints of works exhibited sold for at least £50. The exhibition did not include cards.
The Exhibition was a great success. Sales at the show were £14,500. 71 paintings and browser items were sold from 31 artists and the visitors spent a considerable amount of time at the show.
