Society of Women Artists

OPENED July 28th, 2016

The Society of Women Artists was first founded in 1857 as a collective group to introduce the work of female artists to the world of fine art appreciation. In a time when the London art scene orientated around the male dominated Royal Academy, the S.W.A offered an alternative voice. The society laid the foundations for women artists’ formal training, education and acted as an outlet for their public showing. Fast forward to 2016 and the S.W.A remain a force to be reckoned with. This year they’re back in the Mall Galleries to showcase 140 of their members latest work. Pieces are hung as an eclectic array. The work of seasoned professional artists are hung beside the new innovations of emerging Young Artists.

Diversity is the show’s strength. Every medium is touched upon and no mode of expression has been exempt. It makes for an array of exciting visual contrasts that acts as a platform for art world debate. The show plays host to a series of topical talks and workshops that allow visitors to engage with the show’s dynamic visual contrasts. Discussions and demonstrations include the use of light and colour in watercolour, painting on glass, the impact of bold brushstrokes and dramatic colour, the texture and atmosphere of watercolour, painting fruit with oils and making a sculpture.

The exhibitions’ position on the Mall makes for a distinctive summer stroll. The gallery itself provides the perfect background for the gravitas of such a unique opportunity to see so many prolific works from female artists curated together.
