BANNER Exhibition Continues

The Chelsea Art Society Open Art Exhibition 2020

18th - 22nd June 2020
This Open Art Exhibition in Chelsea is a firmly established annual event, in its home at Chelsea Old Town Hall, where it has been held since 1994. Between 500 and 600 paintings and sculptures are displayed for sale - selected from more than twice that number, attracting not just established artists but younger ones producing more innovative work.

The majority may be professional artists but as an open exhibition, there are also works of above average quality by many non-professionals. The huge variety and the high standard of work is reflected in the number of buyers and its prominent position in the Kings Road attracts visitors from all over the world.
