Winchester Art Club
Annual Exhibition
The Annual Exhibition is held each autumn for several weeks in the City Space in The ARC, Winchester (formerly Winchester Discovery Centre). The exhibition area is no longer in the downstairs gallery and now on the mezzanine floor at the top of the stairs.
Each member may submit three framed paintings, a framed drawing, two portfolios, three sculptures, and a sketchbook. The exhibition is judged and approximately 100 pictures are hung.
Overview of Annual Exhibition

Each member is allowed to submit up to three paintings a framed drawing, 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.

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 100 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.
