About

Was it the word in the beginning, or the mark? In our species, where the visual sense is so dominant, could it be that the mark began the growth of sophistication in communications. A deer drawn upon a cave wall, but where is written "Ugh was 'ere". Still questions, yet undoubtedly drawing underpinned visual art from the beginning.

Graphic - to describe vividly, accurately - can refer to words as well as drawing, a common root, but whereas the word became everyone's, drawing remained with the few and in modern times has even been dismissed as an inhibition to free visual expression. The Society of Graphic Fine Art was founded in 1919 by major artists to encourage the skill of drawing and today it continues to promote drawing for all, as an art to admire and to practice.

This exhibition highlights the best work of current members and of artists selected from the wider public. You can see works, both figurative and abstract, that show the elegant use of line, the manipulation of shade and the use colour to enhance the underlying drawing. At the Exhibition you can also see our artists giving demonstrations.
