SGFA 100 - The Society of Graphic Fine Art

22nd May - 30th June 10:00am - 6:00pm


SGFA 100 is a brand new exhibition coming to the Palace from 22nd May. 

The works will celebrate artists who are members of The Society of Graphic Fine Art, and the creation of the Society, which is 100 years old this year.

The paintings will cover watercolour, oils and pure pencil from around 20 different artists.

About SGFA: The Society of Graphic Fine Art is the only national society dedicated to drawing. All work has to show drawing technique in whatever medium is used.

The Society was founded as a reaction to the loss of drawing technique being shown in the Cubist movement of 1919.  Their first exhibition in 1921 was supported by members of the Royal Academy of Arts, together with many of the leading draughtsmen of the day. 

Today the SGFA is formed of 130 professional artists and will have 3 major exhibitions this Centenary Year, at Royal Birmingham, the Bankside Gallery (home of the Royal Watercolour Society), and an Open exhibition at the Menier Gallery, London.

Included in admission to the Palace & Gardens. Please note: the exhibition will be closed on the morning of Thursday 13th May until 2pm.
