The New English Art Club Annual Exhibition is a chance to experience the very best in figurative, observational and painterly work in the UK. 

It showcases paintings, drawings and prints from its elected members alongside work by emerging artists whose ethos reflects its own: informed by the visual world and personal interpretation; and underpinned by drawing.

“At a stage where figurative painting is making a huge comeback (the tide has turned), the New English stands in a great position due to its long, rich legacy and keystone principles of drawing. Eclectic but coherent, our Annual Exhibition is a snapshot of the very best work being produced today.”   Peter Brown, NEAC President​
