The New English Art Club exhibits the very best in figurative, observational and painterly work in the UK.
Showcasing paintings, drawings and prints from its elected members alongside work by emerging artists whose ethos reflects its own, the New English Art Club strives to be informed by the visual world and personal interpretation with a focus on drawing.
Founded in the 19th Century, the New English traces its history through artists as eclectic 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 of £2500 this year will be awarded to the most promising work by a non-member thanks to Chris Beetles Gallery, along with a number of other awards for outstanding work.
The exhibition will be available to view online from 12 October. Prizewinners will be announced online on Wednesday 11 November, 5pm.
