About us


Members section


Now Open

The United Society of Artists brings together contemporary artists whose work covers a broad spectrum of style, subjects and media. Several UA Members are members of other recognised national art societies including the Royal Society of Oil Painters, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Society of Marine Artists, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and the much respected Wapping Group of plein air painters. The UA also has young artists - talented, contemporary and aspiring.

The Society enables Members to show and be promoted in exhibitions at different galleries and locations throughout the UK.

Any exhibition of work by UA members is always an exciting and eclectic mix of artistic mediums. Styles range from representational to abstraction and conceptual. UA members cover a diverse range of approaches including figurative, impressionist and expressionist. This diversity and openness to ideas is what helps to make the UA distinctive in character and so welcoming to new artists.

The UA holds an Annual Members' Exhibition in London which is open to Members only and an Open Exhibition which is open to Members and non-Members. The exhibition shows the best work submitted, regardless of style, subject or media.
