Investors In ArtInvestors In Art (IIA) has been set up by the Society Of Scottish Artists to encourage investment in the future of Scottish Art

By becoming a member of our new Investors in Art programme, SMEs, Companies and Individuals will provide regular exhibiting opportunities for hundreds of artists.

The Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) would like to invite you to be part of a new network of businesses supporting some of the best contemporary art in Scotland.

SSA provides a platform for emerging artists to exhibit alongside those more established, and has a long-standing tradition of showing art which is innovative and adventurous. Our prestigious Annual Exhibition, held each year in the Royal Scottish Academy on Edinburgh’s Princes Street, presents work of the highest standard from across many disciplines and is attended by approximately 15,000 visitors each year.

In order that we may continue to present this valuable overview of the visual arts in Scotland and provide regular exhibiting opportunities for hundreds of artists, the SSA must raise a considerable sum.

We would like to invite you to invest in the future of Scottish Art by becoming a member of our new Investors in Art programme.

Membership is through a donation of £1,000 with considerable benefits. Please see full details below.
