8 May 2014 to 23 May 2014
Main Gallery, North Gallery & Threadneedle Space

The work is in styles from the photo-real to the painterly, the traditional to the challenging and the sitters just as diverse with a broad range of fascinating characters spangled by a glitter of celebrities.

Come and simply enjoy the art and the characters on the wall or choose to engage further. Portrait commissions are the lifeblood of the art of portraiture so, to encourage people to commission portraits, an art consultant is available in the galleries throughout the exhibition to advise and ease the process.

The exhibition is formed of work by our distinguished members and enriched by over 100 portraits from emerging non-member artists who compete to be exhibited.
