‘Ebb and Flow: a Chelsea Perspective’ is the theme for this, our second exhibition at 340 Kings Road.


Not only the ebb and flow of water, which in Chelsea is most obvious in the tidal variations of the river Thames: many artists taking part have also found their cue in the coming and going of people in Sloane Square, in the movement of traffic, of light, or of the seasons. The watery theme has taken some artists towards rainy pavements or fountains; others, sculptors especially, have found all manner of aquatic inspiration, from boating to water nymphs. In short, this may be a Chelsea perspective but it seems to have become as refracted and complex as the ripples themselves on the waters below Chelsea Embankment.


This is the second year that Sloane Stanley have so generously sponsored both the exhibition and the William Sloane Medal, and we look forward to announcing the winner on the opening night. We are very grateful to Sloane Stanley for their vision in supporting a significant and historical local art group.


We are also delighted that Fulham gallery owner Piers Feetham has so kindly agreed to be the judge for this year’s Award. Commissioned by Sloane Stanley for these exhibitions, the William Sloane Medal was designed by Kate Harrison for these exhibitions - and once again this year will be awarded to one of our artists for the best work in the show.

William Sloane Medal

There is a rich artistic heritage in Chelsea, and Chelsea Art Society itself has its roots in the bohemian era of Chelsea’s past, when many artists still lived and worked in and around Tite Street. Although rising property prices have forced most artists out of Chelsea, many of the 100 or so members of Chelsea Art Society have lived, worked or trained in Chelsea at some point, and all are in some way connected and inspired by this wonderful area.


Do come along and see our exhibition – there is free entry and we will be delighted to show you around.
