Local, original, affordable art

SMAG Art is now ONLINE!

SMAG ART LTD is a not for profit company, limited by guarantee, run entirely by volunteers, that has been set up to run art exhibitions at St Michael’s Church, Blackheath Park. The net proceeds from the exhibitions are gifted to local charities

SMAG EXHIBITIONS give an opportunity for artists (amateur and semi-professional) to display their work in the dramatic setting of St Michael’s, Blackheath Park. This church is a historic Grade II* listed building constructed 1828-30, known historically and locally as the Needle of Kent. It represented the boundary between the old London area and the County of Kent.

In 2019, SMAG Art held two exhibitions in the beautiful building of St Michael’s Church; one in June and one in November. Combined, these exhibitions had over 1100 visitors, sold 93 pieces of art, and raised £5000 for local charities. The exhibition in November was the first time local secondary schools were invited to exhibit giving art students the experience of participating in such an event.

SMAG 7 was scheduled to start at the end of May 2020. Due to Corona virus, it looked as if it would have to be cancelled. This was not an option and now you can find SMAG Art online!

Launched May 28th, SMAG 7 will run for 2 months. Artists are welcome to join for £5 entry fee and 30% commission. Profits will be given to Greenwich Foodbank and St Michael’s building works.
