2019 Annual Exhibition 9-24 May

Unlike other portrait exhibitions, this exhibition is rigorously selected by professional portrait painters who themselves have been elected by their peers to their Society. It forms a showcase of recent portraiture with over 200 portraits by over 100 artists.  This extraordinary cohort of work also provides a one-stop shop for those who may wish to commission a portrait.

 

This year there is a special display of works by students from five Scottish art schools. Each art-school was invited to nominate one student for inclusion in this year’s Annual Exhibition.

We are also showing a historic painting  ‘Lillie Langtry. The Dean’s Daughter’ by the early member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, G F  Watts, to celebrate next year’s extra show at the Watts Gallery.
