Montage of logo and four images from the spring exhibition


We are a lively, friendly, community based art society run by its members for artists living in and around Islington. Our members represent a range of disciplines including painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics.

We mount two shows of members’ work every year, one in spring/ summer and one in autumn (for more information see exhibitions page). All members are eligible to submit work for which there is a small administrative charge. Membership costs £25 a year - please see the membership page for further details.
