Each year the Society of Women Artists invite members and non members to submit new art and selects the best for our annual exhibition. This carefully curated selection of work represents some of the finest contemporary art seen in the UK. The diverse collection of art covers a range of media and subjects created by a range of artists from well known with international reputations to talented newcomers. The SWA seeks works of the highest standard within its specific field and continues to promote women artists and prides itself on the diverse nature of the work.
Art needs to be seen in person to be truly appreciated and this year we are excited to be returning to real life exhibitions. After two years online, once again we are exhibiting at the Mall Galleries.
The Exhibition will be officially opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent on Wednesday, 7th June at 11am at the private view.
We would be delighted if you could join us at any of the events.
