The SSA has long aimed to represent adventurous work from Scotland and further afield with exhibitions including the work of the Post Impressionists, Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse and Van Gogh in 1913. In 1922 the Society presented work by Picasso, Daumier, Degas and Forain. In 1931, the Society showed, for the first time in the UK, twelve canvases by the then highly controversial Edvard Munch who went on to become a member of the Society.
The SSA today continues in the spirit of its founders, to show the controversial and the unexpected and to give hanging space to new artists of promise. It also regularly exhibits work from artists drawn from many areas overseas. In an art-world where the divide between new genres and traditional media has rarely been wider, the SSA plays a unique and vital role in bridging the gap.
The SSA is an artist-led membership organisation that is governed by an elected president and council.
