About the Society of Graphic Fine Art
The Society was founded in 1919 with origins in the etching class of the
London Central School of Arts and Crafts.
Responding to the rise of Modernism, it was founded to proclaim the value of good draughtsmanship.
The inaugural exhibition was held in 1921 and the Society gained general recognition when Sir Frank Branwyn became the first President. Today it is a national Society with over 100 elected members all over the UK. They are professional artists from all areas of the art world and the Society remains proudly unique in promoting the work of
artists who encompass a wealth of traditional and modern drawing skills.
The events calendar culminates in an Open Exhibition that celebrates the drawing skills of both members and selected non-members. The Society exists to promote fine drawing skills whether with brush, pen, charcoal, conte or any of the forms of original printmaking.
