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. This year 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.
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Our studio sessions at the gallery kick off again next week with the pre-booked workshop by Chris Clements – Portrait Fundamentals – on Monday 6th January.
Collection of work in the Annual Exhibition
The annual exhibition will be open to the public up to, and including, 16th January: you will not, therefore, be able to collect your work until the day after, the 17th January – apologies, the information distributed with the entry forms was misleading on this point. The works should be collected by the 22nd at the latest.

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.
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.
