The SWA is a unique Society in that its rich mix of oil painters, water colourists, sculptors, printers and ceramicists is able to showcase one of the most diverse shows in London today. Our artists all have something to say about modern life as well as gaining inspiration from history: the environment and human spirit in the form of drama, passion and comedy feature heavily in the beautiful work what was on show at the 2013 Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. 'Sue Jelley,
We are sad to have to report the loss of a valued Council Member, Jackie Grisley, who has died, after a long illness.
Jackie’s artistic life began in the formal world of Fleet Street, where she had a successful career in graphic design. It was only in later years that she made a break for freedom and expressed herself in those wild and atmospheric seascapes and hills which were her forte, and for which we all remember her. She first exhibited with the Society in 2004, was made an Associate in 2005 and elected to Membership in 2006, to her absolute delight. She cherished her SWA membership and was keen to promote the interests of the Society wherever she could.
Galleries in London, Hertfordshire and Norfolk showed Jackie’s work and, in spite of increasing frailty, she was able to produce two paintings for inclusion in our Celebratory 151st Exhibition.
