Winchester Art Club
Annual Exhibition
The Annual Exhibition is held each autumn for three or more weeks in the City Space in the Winchester Discovery Centre.
Overview of Annual Exhibition

Each member is allowed to submit up to three paintings and three sculptures for judging by a selection panel of independent professional artists, and the acceptance or rejection of each entry is decided entirely on artistic merit ensuring that the standard of exhibits remains high.

Pictures must have a minimum frame size of 25 x 20 cm and a maximum of 100 x 70 cm. They must be original unaided work of the member, made in the last five years, and not shown previously at a Winchester Art Club Annual Exhibition. All work must be signed. See 'Exhibition Rules' for all details.

Each member may also enter a drawing for the 'Big Draw' competition.

Artists pay a 4 hanging fee for each work of art submitted. Members may also submit two portfolio entries for which there is no fee. 36% commission is charged on all sales.

Approximately 180 paintings and sculptures are displayed, showing the best of our work in a wide range of styles and media. The exhibition attracts about 700 visitors per week.
