Stockport Art Guild

Stockport Art Guild 96th Annual Exhibition

  • 3 December 2016 — 7 January 2017 *on now

In 1919, the year after The Great War had finally drawn to an end, a group of Stockport citizens came together in hope and optimism to share a passion for art and to form what was originally known as a Guild of Arts and Crafts. Meeting in various local halls and members’ houses, they laid the foundations for what would become one of the most important and influential arts societies in the North West of England.

Over the decades a constant aspect of the Guild’s activities has been its annual exhibition. Each year members submit work not only to show and sell, but also to promote art in general to a wider audience.

During the ‘50s and ‘60s, the Guild had its own studio at St. Peter’s Square in Stockport, but today our members, be they beginners or professional artists, meet regularly at the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery to paint and draw, as well as attend workshop classes and demonstrations by visiting artists from across the country.
