Membership pamphlet

“The Society has been established for over one hundred years, although exhibitions did not run during the wars years; in the late 1940s, and early 1950s (the 2014 exhibition was the  the 80th in this time) – and, it seems a little incredulous, the Art Gallery in Schoolhill, Aberdeen was actually built to house the Society’s Annual Exhibition and the Macdonald Collection.

The early exhibitions of the Society featured such revered artists as Augustus John; the english impressionists, including Walter Sickert, and members of the Pre-Raphaelite Movement” …..
