The Society consists of mainly professionally trained artists who are selling their work. We wish to encourage relevant work, which reflects the world we live in, and is innovative and original. We use our exhibitions as a show case for the exchange of ideas and we aim to facilitate the development of new work which can be traditional or contemporary. We welcome new members to apply for selection. All work must be of a high professional standard and integrity. To that end, since the start of the Society in 1924, it has always believed that drawing with competence and understanding should be evident in at least two pieces of finished work out of the six pieces which are brought to the selection meeting by prospective members.
Former members of the Society have included such distinguished artists as Glynn Philpott, George Hooper, Charles Morris, Charles Knights, Dorothy Coke, Luther Roberts, Joseph di Guiseppe and Sam Fenton. Membership of the Society now stands at about thirty and we hold one or two exhibitions in different parts of Sussex each year. Our 90th anniversary exhibition at Worthing was a great success, appreciated by the many visitors, and especially by the Mayor of Worthing, Councillor Vic Walker.
