About the Society

Founded in 1919, the Society promotes fine drawing skills in both traditional and contemporary media. Today there are more than 120 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.

SGFA DRAW 14 A5-posterThe Society organises events through the year, culminating in the Annual Open Exhibition with outstanding drawings in both traditional and contemporary media 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 twice a year.

More information, together with a gallery of members’ work, is available on the Society’s web site at www.sgfa.org.uk.
