Coronavirus Emergency:

It is with regret that we have curtailed most of our activities in line with government directives. In particular, this year’s Summer Exhibition (Yvonne Arnaud Art) has been cancelled. We are sorry not to be able to bring to you all the exciting works we had found and share with you a celebration of a quarter of a century of art! But we wish you all a safe and healthy summer and look forward to welcoming you in 2021.

Any other arts events referenced on this website are unlikely to take place or to be replaced with a ‘virtual happening’!

Keep safe,

Guildford Arts

The Guildford Society continues to encourage good design in Guildford Borough by its bi-annual design awards. We are now seeking nominations for the awards that will be presented in late 2020. The schemes need to have been completed between September 2018 and June 2020. Recognising the delays to some projects’ completion because of coronavirus, projects that were due for completion by June 2020 but delayed for a few weeks will be considered.

The categories of projects for the Awards are:-

  • New Build – Individual House
  • New Build – Multiple Housing
  • Restoration or refurbishment Project
  • Public Realm Improvements including public artworks.

Nominations can be for a location anywhere in the Borough of Guildford. The Borough boundaries can be discovered 

Projects will be judged by a small panel consisting of GSoC members and panellists invited for their architectural, planning, artistic background. The draft judging criteria to be confirmed by the judging panel can be accessed

The Society will be careful to approach property owners to ensure they are happy for their scheme to be considered.

If you would like to nominate a project for consideration be it large or small please e-mail to  details including:

  • Location including postcode,
  • Category from list above
  • Brief description of the Project including key features of the design, maximum 1 page A4
  • Photographs of the completed project
  • Name of Client and consultants responsible for the design
  • Email address, phone number, etc. for key contact

Art@Clyde&Co – the latest exhibition (Well some of it!)

An opportunity to buy!

We had to postpone the Private Viewing but felt quite sorry that our artists would not get the the exposure and critical appraisal their works deserve.

So … here is a sample to enjoy.

Just click on any image and view the slide show.

If you would like to know more about an exhibit and might be interested in buying one, please visit the GALLERY in the main menu – and feel free to purchase anything that takes your fancy!

Obviously we cannot deliver anything until the emergency is over but the exhibits are all quite secure. They are still hanging in Clyde&Co with 24hr security!

Best wishes from Guildford Arts – and stay safe,

Sue Dragon

Guildford Arts Regrets

that the Private Viewing due to be held at Clyde&Co on March 11th has been postponed indefinitely.

The Management Board of Clyde&Co have requested that we do not go ahead with the Private Viewing in consideration of the potential risks associated with the Coronavirus situation.

We will try to reschedule the viewing at a later date but obviously cannot predict how the probable pandemic will evolve and its impact on what may or may not be possible – and when.

We are sorry that the artists who have provided such excellent work for the exhibition will not get the exposure and feedback that is such a valuable and enjoyable part of a Private Viewing.
