Annual Exhibitions of Scottish Art Societies

The Royal Society of Arts building, The Mound, Edinburgh
The three major Scottish Art Societies are:
The Exhibiting Societies of Scottish Artists, or ESSA, is a collaborative fundraising venture between ourselves (VAS), The Society of Scottish Artists (SSA), and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW).  ESSA organises regular selling events, such as an art auction and a postcard sale. 
plus the Royal Scottish Academy which has an Open Exhibition in the autumn.  All have their exhibitions at the The Royal Scottish Academy Building, The Mound, Edinburgh


Scottish Art Society Open Exhibitions : Deadlines, Venues and Dates 

I should have done this earlier - check the deadlines!  Take this as a reminder for all those who are already prepared and make a note at the end of your calendar for 2012!
The annual RSW Exhibition is a celebration of the practice of waterbased painting. Colour and creativity come together in this large show where RSW members and their guests show their work with non-members selected from an open submission.
It's interesting that three of the societies appear to have arranged their deadline for artwork submissions amd exhibitions on the same days at the same venue.
