Support Us

The New English Art Club is a registered charity. We rely on the generosity of the public, and corporate sponsors, to further our aims of supporting aspiring and established figurative artists through teaching, scholarships and exhibiting. There are a variety of ways to support us and get involved - including our popular Friends scheme, Sponsorship opportunities and one-off or regular Donations.

Why support the New English?

"Because artists should be greatly encouraged and supported, without condition. Without them, the world would descend into an inhuman and terrifying greyness. To draw and paint figurative art is to be utterly present, to notice and to see, and to notice again, and appreciate and then record this light, this figure, this landscape; object; person; feeling; thought; dream as it is now in this moment, and then this one. After all, 'now' is the only moment we can be sure of." Richard & Alison Chenevix-Trench
