About the exhibition

The Merton Art Society exhibition is a group installation displaying works from a number of local artists, showing a range of pictures in different styles and media.  

The exhibition demonstrates the range of creativity amongst members of the society who take their inspiration from expert talks, demonstrations and critique sessions put on throughout the year.

About the group

Merton Art Society is a long running art society, having been established more than fifty years  ago.

The origins of the society date back to an exhibition of nearly 300 paintings put on by Merton & Morden Civic Society in May 1963. The art society was launched later the same year, with a subscription of 25 shillings.

Merton Art Society is a collaboration of professional and amateur artists from the local area including Wimbledon, Morden and Mitcham. The society enjoys getting together one Tuesday a month in order to take part in talks, discussions, demonstrations, and life classes. The professional artists that visit the group provide advice on perfecting certain techniques, whether it be for landscapes, portraits, watercolour, oils, acrylics, or pastels.
