Founded in 1919, the Society promotes fine drawing skills in both traditional and contemporary media. Today there are more than 130 elected members of the SGFA across the UK — professional artists from all areas of the art world who work in all drawing and printmaking media. The Society organises events through the year, culminating in the Annual Open Exhibition with outstanding drawings by some of Britain’s finest professional artists, members and non-members alike. The Society also stages regional members-only exhibitions. The SGFA is funded solely by members’ subscriptions and is governed by an elected Council which meets regularly to administer its affairs. Membership applications are welcome and are reviewed once a year. Join us.
