painting of a coastal scene

Our next Annual Exhibition is scheduled for 25 June to 3 July 2021 at Mall Galleries.

Artists are invited to submit work for exhibition alongside our members. How to Submit

We also award two scholarships each year to emerging artists with the most promising portfolios. Find out more.

Every year, the exhibition showcases paintings, drawings and prints from our elected members alongside work by emerging artists whose ethos reflects its own: informed by the visual world and personal interpretation, while 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

Founded in the 19th Century, the New English traces its history through artists as diverse as Stanley Spencer, David Bomberg, Vanessa Bell and Gwen John. More recent exhibitors include Royal Academicians such as Humphrey Ocean, Anthony Green and Anthony Eyton.
