The SEA holds exhibitions throughout the UK. Our exhibitions are hosted by galleries and museums. Recent shows have been held at Sally Mitchell’s gallery and Museum of the Horse in Tuxford and Weston Park in Shifnal, Shropshire.

Since its inception, the Society’s principal exhibition for members’ paintings and sculpture has been the Annual Exhibition. As part of an ongoing renewal process in order to progress the Society as THE centre of excellence for equestrian art, it became an Open Exhibition in 2010 called ‘Horse in Art’, welcoming entries from members and non-members alike from all around the world.

Events & Activities

The society runs regular workshops throughout the year at different equestrian establishments throughout the UK and sometimes Ireland and is always willing to consider venues further afield. For over thirty years we have organised a week long residential workshop in the South West of England where up to thirty SEA members of all levels have enjoyed seven days of tutored painting of the horse from life. Day and weekend workshops are also very popular and vary in subject matter from heavy horses to racehorses, donkeys to Arabs, racetracks to Victorian stables. The variety is endless.

Many of our members have gained lifelong friends through the society.

We have a variety of activities to offer for supporters,* members, artists, young people and anyone else who likes to visit our exhibitions or get involved with the SEA.

Details of our current and forthcoming exhibitions and workshops can be found above.

We like to support our member artists and here you can also find information about their individual exhibitions, previews, artist workshops and education sessions.
