The SSA Annual Exhibition will showcase artworks by members of Scotland’s largest artist-led organisation. The exhibition will show some of the most exciting work being made by the Society’s members and other selected artists, as well as bringing powerful international work to audiences in Edinburgh.

As part of the Society’s continuing commitment to supporting emerging artists, we have invited a number of graduating students from the five main Scottish art schools to exhibit. This year’s exhibition will feature a showcase of the work of 20 graduates of Scotland’s art schools selected from the graduating classes of 2020 and 2021, providing an important opportunity for those who haven’t been able to share their work in person as a result of the pandemic. As well as emerging talents, the exhibition will feature the work of celebrated artists including Mary Morrison, Charlotte Roseberry, Rachel Duckhouse and Louise Barrington. To mark the centenary of the birth of former SSA president George Wyllie, the exhibition will also feature a selection of works generously loaned by the George Wyllie Estate.

We are delighted to once again be working with CutLog to present a series of works entitled Essential Travel for this year’s Annual Exhibition. 

This year also sees the return of our 30 x 30 affordable art sale of small works by our members. All exhibited artworks will also be available to buy.
