Many members of the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution are creatively talented with the membership including both professional artists and gifted amateurs. The Members’ Art Exhibition, held every three years at Highgate Gallery, celebrates and displays this breadth of talent.

All HLSI members can submit up to three pieces of two-dimensional work, be it oils, watercolours, acrylics, textiles, prints or photographs. Selection for exhibition is made by a panel consisting this year of Simon Turner, artist and teacher at Haberdashers’ Girls’ School; Mary Shurman, doyenne of Members’ Art shows for the past twenty years; and several members of the Highgate Gallery Committee. The aim is to show the range of expertise and the highest quality of work produced by members.

The event is always popular with exhibitors and Gallery visitors alike, and is a much anticipated date in the HLSI winter programme as well as the wider social life in Highgate village. One of the exhibiting artists will be in the Gallery each day throughout the show to welcome visitors, assist with queries and introduce the work on show.

Admission is free and all work will be for sale.

The Private View of the twelfth HLSI Members’ Art Exhibition will be held on Friday 4 February 18.00-20.30.

Details of how to enter the exhibition can be found here.
