The Exhibiting Societies of Scottish Artists, or ESSA, is a collaborative fundraising venture between ourselves (VAS), The Society of Scottish Artists (SSA), and the Royal Scottish Society of painters in Watercolour (RSW). ESSA organises regular selling events, such as an art auction and a postcard sale. Funds raised go towards the rental costs of the RSA building to host the annual exhibitions of the respective societies, which amounts to around £30,000 per year. ESSA is greatly indebted to the members of the three societies for their continued support and donations of quality artworks. Visit the ESSA website for more information.
