Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

Founded in 1891, the Society of Scottish Artists held its first Annual Exhibition in the Royal Scottish Academy Gallery in the heart of Edinburgh. Today continues in the spirit of its founders, to show the controversial and the unexpected and to give hanging space to new artists of promise. Run by artists for artists, the Society is led by a team of volunteers, each elected by the members and working together to create opportunities for artists.

What Makes this event different?

The Society of Scottish Artist will present an ambitious and diverse exhibition across the whole upper galleries of Edinburgh’s magnificent Royal Scottish Academy. We encourage all artists, of all levels, from anywhere in the world to apply. Artists do not need to be Scottish or based in Scotland to apply. Works selected will be presented alongside a curated selection of exceptional art. Works in all media will be considered including installation, audio, film, interactive works, performance, animation or proposals for unrealised work produced to respond to the galleries. We are equally keen to see contemporary works in painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture and all other mediums, for which there is no size restriction. You can now submit your work online. Our selection process is completely anonymous so every proposal has an equal chance of success. With a mission to encourage experimentation and promote the adventurous in contemporary art, we are looking for the unexpected.
