EKAS as the East Kent Art Society is best known has existed since 1902 and is considered one of the most distinguished Art Societies in East Kent. Members of which there are about 70 are elected to the society by submission of work put in front of the selection committee comprising professional artists and tutors and distinguished and talented amateurs and as such there is always a variety and high standard of work displayed at its Annual Exhibition and subsidiary exhibitions. As an exhibiting society our Annual Exhibition is now normally held at St Peter's Church, Market St, Sandwich but we have exhibited at Canterbury Beaney and Sidney Cooper Galleries and elsewhere in East Kent.
The society actively responds to a variety of artistic talent and trends and positively encourages younger acomplished artists to become Young Members. For those who would like to be considered for membership please contact Mr. John Hughes, Hon. Secretary, 14 Beech Grove, Cliffsend, Ramsgate CT12 5LD
