I am very pleased to have had all three of my paintings accepted into the CAS Summer Exhibition at the first time of asking. Founded in 1910, The Chelsea Art Society is the oldest and sole survivor of the many art groups that blossomed in the area around that period. Rossetti and Turner began the trend to settle in Chelsea in the mid 19th Century, followed by Whistler, Sickert, Augustus John and John Singer Sargent.

Its current President is Alice Hall. There are currently around 110 Members and artists are invited to join the Society through having shown exceptional work at the exhibition over a three year period. The majority of exhibitors tend to be residents of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea but are free to apply from all over the UK.

The exhibition runs from the 14th-19th June at The Old Town Hall, Kings Road, Chelsea where 600 artworks will be on display. Well worth a visit.
