The New English Art Club exhibits the very best in figurative, observational and painterly work in the UK.
The exhibition showcases paintings, drawings and prints from elected members alongside work by emerging artists.
Founded in the 19th Century, the New English traces its history through artists as diverse as Stanley Spencer, David Bomberg, Vanessa Bell and Gwen John. More recent exhibitors include Royal Academicians such as Humphrey Ocean, Anthony Green and Anthony Eyton.
The New English has from its outset sought out strong developing artists at an early stage in their career and the headline prize this year of £2,000 will be awarded to the most promising work by a non-member thanks to Chris Beetles Gallery, and announced at the opening of the exhibition along with a number of other awards for outstanding work.
