Update from the new chair

Posted on July 1, 2022

I am really delighted and honoured to be offered the role of Chair for the RSA taking over from Denise Franklin who did such a marvellous job especially through the very testing times of the last two years.

The summer exhibition is coming up very soon and we are really excited to be back to our normal two gallery space set up, giving us a chance to show even more beautiful artwork of our members and selected non members work. We have six new members this year, Chris Booth, Sally Cole, Christopher James, Yvette Glaze, Lisa Katzenstein, Janet Milner and Clare Mitchell. Please take the opportunity to have a look at their new pages on our website.

Very sadly we have recently lost one of our most esteemed members, Fred Cuming RA. In 1974 he was elected a Royal Academician (ARA 1969). He was a Member of the New English Art Club and an Associate of the Royal College of Art. His work is held in countless private and public collections around the world. Fred Cuming became a member of the RSA in 1986 and his loss will be felt acutely by the society.
