Open Online Only
Exhibition Admission is usually £5. If you have enjoyed viewing the exhibition online, and could consider making a donation to help us through this period of closure, any amount would be greatly appreciated.
There is always so much to enjoy in this exhibition, from the faces depicted in the portraits, both famous and unfamiliar, to the wide variety of high-quality paintings. It is a celebration of the very best in contemporary portraiture nationally and internationally.
Unlike other portrait exhibitions, it is rigorously selected by professional portrait painters who themselves have been elected by their peers to the Society. It is one of the world’s most extensive contemporary portrait exhibitions forming a showcase of some 200 works.
To encourage this unique genre, we run a commissions service throughout the show to help you commission a work of your own.
