Stockport Art Guild: Home

We are a Stockport-based group of over 100 amateur and professional artists. We aim to have an ongoing programme of life drawing and portrait sessions for our members and we also hold an annual exhibition of member’s work at the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery. Please visit our Facebook page for the latest information click here.

Newsflash: Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery has now re-opened.

Thursday Life drawing and Saturday Portraiture sessions are continuing as normal. An update will be posted here if there are any future cancellations.

Please note that whilst the front of the War Memorial Art Gallery is undergoing essential maintenance, visitors will be required to use the staff entrance at the side of the building to enter. The temporary entrance will be clearly marked. During the maintenance works, the building can only be accessed on foot via the pedestrian route from Greek Street. Please use the buzzer on arrival.

If you or any member of your party has a disability and require wheelchair access, please contact the Gallery Team on 0161 474 4453 prior to your visit so that alternative access arrangements can be made.

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.

To celebrate Stockport Art Guild’s Centenary we have produced a fascinating book that chronicles our 100-year history. To find out more, please click here.
