Welcome to the Association of Sussex Artists, with a proud tradition, dating back to 1928, of being a centre to showcase the very best of professional and amateur work by painters, sculptors and potters from across West and East Sussex, the Association has grown to become an important feature of artistic culture in the County.
We are very privileged and honoured to have Lady Emma Barnard DL as our Patron. Lady Emma has a lifelong interest in the arts and has had a long-established involvement with The National Gallery. Her family home — Parham House, near Pulborough — is a jewel amongst Sussex’s historic buildings, and contains a superb collection of fine and applied arts, much admired by visitors.
We are long established, but constantly evolving and growing, and looking for new ideas, new members and new supporters. With an annual exhibition in Horsham displaying some 400 works for sale, selected by an independent committee, we are able to provide good and affordable art of wide ranging styles and media. Whether you are keen to exhibit with the Association of Sussex Artists, or to visit our exhibitions with a view to purchasing or just appreciating the displays, you are most welcome.
