The Federation of British Artists (FBA) consists of nine art societies, and is based at the Mall Galleries in London where the societies Annual Exhibitions are held. The societies represent living artists working in the UK who create contemporary figurative art. The Mall Galleries aim to ‘promote, inspire and educate audiences about the visual arts.’
The FBA has over 500 artist-members, who regularly exhibit their work and also accept open submissions from the public. In addition to the member societies, other societies and individual artists also stage shows at the Mall Galleries. Over 100 prizes and awards are administered each year by the societies.
The gallery also has a commissions department and Friends organisation. The galleries education department runs a Schools Programme, which includes gallery based workshops for Primary and Secondary school students.
