The Green Man looks away from the viewer with a poignant, wistful expression. The spider's web hints at the fragile interconnectedness of Nature. A dandelion clock implies transience, but also proliferation. A butterfly suggests rebirth.

94th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Graphic Fine Art

Monday 5th - Saturday 17th October 2015

The Society of Graphic Fine Art – The Drawing Society is the only national art society dedicated exclusively to drawing. Founded in 1919 in the etching class of the Central School of Arts and Crafts and boasting such alumni as Ronald Searle, Frank Brangwyn and Dame Laura Knight, today the Society promotes fine drawing skills in both traditional and contemporary media. Each year an open exhibition is held at the Menier Gallery in Southwark, and this year the 94th one, DRAW 15, with optional theme ‘Time and Space’ will run from October 5th - 17th, with a Private View on Tuesday October 6th.

98 professional artists working across all drawing and printmaking media will show 251 works ranging from figurative to non-figurative, colour to monochrome, and from etching to collage. Dr Sumi Perera RE , whose work is in Tate Britain, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Ashmolean, and the Yale Centre for British Art, is strongly featured, as is Fred Cuming RA – the youngest-ever member to be elected to the Royal Academy in 1974, and one of Britain’s best-known contemporary landscape painters. Professor Ken Howard, OBE RA, and Maz Jackson, the internationally-renowned tempera artist, will also exhibit.

The exhibition will be opened and the prizes awarded by John Huddy, owner and founder of illustration cupboard – a unique central London Art Gallery representing the most distinguished contemporary book illustrators from around the world. They will be selected by Martin Short is, a tutor at the Royal Drawing School.
