 LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY: Cross Gate Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of works by members of the prestigious New English Art Club (NEAC).  The NEAC represents the very best of contemporary British figurative painting.


The selectively curated exhibition will consist of approximately eighty works in oil, watercolor, and pastel.  Subjects range from still lifes, landscapes, and figure studies.  Thomas Coates, Benjamin Sullivan, Leslie Worth, Michael Reynolds, Mellissa Scott-Miller, and John Ward are among the artists to be included.  The exhibition will show examples of the artists’ best works, many of which have not been on view for many years.


“I think the New English Art Club is second only to the Royal Academy in terms of prestige and reputation of its members,” says Cross Gate owner Greg Ladd.  The group was formed in 1885 by British artists who had been exposed to impressionism (then still a  very avant-garde style) and felt the academicism of the Royal Academy to be too stifling.  One of its founders was John Singer Sargent.  It currently has about seventy active members and is one of the most respected and collected artistic societies in Europe.  Cross Gate is the only American gallery to exhibit their work.


The majority of works are by Thomas Coates, former president of the NEAC, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Pastel Society, and various other artistic societies.  He exhibits annually with the Royal Academy and the New English Art Club and was commissioned to record the late Queen Mother’s 90th birthday celebration.  


An opening reception will be held on May 12 from 6 - 8pm at Cross Gate Gallery.  Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 5:30 pm and Saturday, 9am to 1pm.
