UA Press Release 2010

The United Society of Artists (founded in 1922) has become one of the fastest

growing associations of painters and sculptors, fulfilling the aim of being a

representative society of competent artists within Britain who work in a wide range of

styles and subjects and in diverse media.

It operates in a mutually co-operative way and holds at least one Open Exhibition per

year in London. Such exhibitions are for members and candidates for membership

but also open to other artists whose work can satisfy the Society's standards. Prizes

include art materials from Jacksons and other suppliers. The 89th Open Annual is at

the Menier Gallery Chocolate Factory, London SE1 1RU (13-17 April 2010, 10.00 to

18.00, Sat. 10.00 to 16.00).

In addition, the United Society of Artists intends to hold exhibitions of work by

members only with the aim of promoting their talents, of selling their work and

winning commissions. In addition, members join together on a co-operative basis to

mount UA Satellite Exhibitions on particular themes.

The United Society of Artists also helps and encourages members to run courses,

undertake teaching or tutoring and give talks.

Potential members can also apply for membership at any time throughout the year

via a simple two-stage selection process. (196 words)
