Announcing the Chris Beetles Gallery Non-Members Award (£2,000)

NEAC and Chris Beetles Gallery

The New English Art Club is delighted to announce the launch of a new prize for our next Annual Exhibition in June 2020 at Mall Galleries: The Chris Beetles Gallery Non-Members Award (£2,000) 

The winner will be selected by Chris Beetles from all the artworks that were chosen to be exhibited from the open submission (which opens in December 2019). 

One of the NEAC’s goals is to support and encourage emerging artists, so we are pleased to be able to offer this prize alongside our annual scholarships and ongoing programme of classes & workshops led by our member artists.

This is part of an increasingly close association (more news soon) between the NEAC and the Chris Beetles Gallery which has exclusively represented Anthony Green NEAC RA for four years, and now looks after the artistic estate of Bernard Dunstan NEAC RA

“Over my many years of dealing in British Art, I have watched with interest the decline of the professional exhibiting society. The New English Art Club almost alone has been reversing that trend and seems to grow in health and success because of it.

“With its founding roots in the late 19th Century, the present group of NEAC members continues the tradition of art based on good drawing and form within an exhibiting society – a relaxed association characterised by camaraderie and the best of ‘cross-pollination’.

“This has great appeal to me as a dealer who has built up a huge faithful clientele over 35 years at St James’s who continue to want traditional art relating to the world in which they live and work.”   Chris Beetles
