We are a Stockport-based group of over 150 amateur and professional artists. We have regular portrait and life drawing sessions and we hold an annual exhibition of our work at the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery. In 2019 we will be celebrating our 100th anniversary. Whatever your artistic ability, you’d be very welcome to come to a free ‘taster’ session before joining the guild.

100 YEARS OF STOCKPORT ART GUILD
The Stockport Art Guild was founded in 1919 and grew out of the Arts and Crafts movement inspired by William Morris. Since our foundation, our aim has always been to promote and encourage artistic expression by everyone within our community. Notable past members include Harry Rutherford, James Chettle, Frederick Davenport Bates and Wilfred Colclough.
The guild has been based in the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery since it was built shortly after the First World War and we continue to be based there to this day.
We are currently researching the history of the Stockport Art Guild for a special commemorative book for our centenary next year. If you are a long-standing member of the guild and have some interesting anecdotes that you would like to share, please email Peter Davis at email@example.com
Our sessions, workshops and exhibitions take place at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery. Parking is available in the evenings and weekends at Stockport College on Greek Street.
