Opportunity for Professional Members

Professional members of SSA, VAS and RSW are invited to submit works to the fourth Societies’ Auction of Fine Art.

ESSA is working once again on behalf of the three societies to secure the rental fee of £30,000 payable annually to the National Galleries of Scotland for the Annual Exhibitions. As last time, we will occupy the upper gallery on the balcony overlooking the main saleroom. Works in all media welcomed. 2D works must be framed. Plinths can be provided for 3D works but are not essential.

It is essential that you register your work in advance of the auction by 15 June so that we can publish the catalogue online two weeks before the date of the event.

You should by now have received a submission form from SSA. Please click here to CONTACT our Administrator if you have not.

Please attach a quality photograph of your artwork that we can use for the online catalogue and for publicity purposes. An image of your work must be provided, as ESSA will not be photographing works this year. If you do not provide an image your work will appear in the catalogue without one. Images should be in jpeg format at 72dpi with the longest edge being 28cm or 800 pix. Please title your work ‘YourSurname_ArtworkTitle.jpg’ (i.e. Munch_TheScream.jpg).
