his year marks an important milestone for The Chelsea Art Society as it hosts its 70th Annual Open Art Exhibition, taking place from Thursday 26th – Monday 30th October in Chelsea Old Town Hall, which has been home to the exhibition for many years. Over 500 innovative paintings and sculptures from both established and aspiring artists will be on view during the four day exhibition, covering a wide range of styles including figurative, abstract, oil, watercolour, print and sculpture. There will also be many awards presented during the exhibition, including the Wedlake Bell Award for a Young Artist (35 years or under), as well as a demonstration by a Chelsea Art Society member and a competition for under 12s.

There are currently around 100 members, with artists invited to join having shown exceptional work at the exhibition over a three year period. The Annual Open Exhibition is open to anyone who wishes to submit works and exhibitors are encouraged to apply from all over the UK. Admission to the Open Exhibition is free and opening times are from 10am to 7pm daily (Sunday 10am-5pm; final day, Monday 30th: 10am to 2pm). For more information visit:
