Nottingham Society of Artists PremisesNottingham Society of Artists is one of the oldest and most successful art societies in the country, founded in 1880. Our aim is to bring together artists and others interested in the Visual Arts who are resident in Nottingham and district.

The Society has a proud history of distinguished members whose works can be seen in major national art institutions, whilst other members’ works can be found in practically every regional art gallery in the country, including Nottingham Castle.

The Society is located in St Luke’s’ House, pictured left, an Art Deco building in Friar Lane close to the picturesque setting of Nottingham Castle.

Our varied groups practice Life, Clothed Model, Portrait and Still Life drawing and painting and meet six days and four evenings a week.

Our galleries are available for hire to artists to both members and non-members of The Society. You may read more about joining and fees here. Please call in to our gallery at 71/73 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DH, for an application form and a chance to look round, or get in touch via our contact page. We look forward to meeting you!
