The UA @ Whitstable


The United Society of Artists

Gallery 1 & 2

5 - 18 December
The UA showcases the work of artists from London and the UK representing some of the best contemporary artists working in different media painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and drawing.

Founded in 1921, it was originally called the New Society of Artists. It was established as an art organisation aimed at giving artists living outside London the opportunity to exhibit in central London. In the 1930s the society changed its name to the United Society of Artists. From 1956, the UA held its annual exhibitions at the FBA Galleries in Great Suffolk Street, Pall Mall, London and from 1972 at the Mall Galleries in Carlton Terrace SW1. In 1988, the UA became independent from the FBA.

Any exhibition of work by UA members is always an exciting and eclectic mix of artistic media. Styles range from representational to abstraction and conceptual. UA members cover a diverse range of approaches including figurative, impressionist and expressionist. This diversity and openness to ideas is what helps to make the UA distinctive in character and so welcoming to new artists.
