We are proud to be associated with The Barber Institute of Fine Arts on the University of Birmingham campus where we hold our lectures.
"Our mission derives from the far-sighted vision of our founder, Lady Barber, who established the Barber Institute of Fine Arts 'for the Study and encouragement of art and music'. The jewel in the cultural crown of the University of Birmingham, the Barber uses its world-class collections to create inspirational opportunities for learning and enjoyment for students, staff and the wider public" Nicola Kalinsky (Director)

The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) is an artist-led charity which supports artists and promotes engagement with the visual arts through a range of inclusive activities: exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations. The Society owns and runs its own exhibition venue, the RBSA Gallery, located just off St Paul's Square, near Birmingham's historic jewellery quarter and a short walk from the city centre.
The Arts Society - Birmingham Evening and Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA)
"The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists is delighted to work together with The Arts Society - Birmingham Evening to promote and encourage engagement with the visual arts. We hope the events and discounts we have arranged with The Arts Society (BE) for its members and friends, and the Bite Size Programme activities will help engage a wider audience with our Gallery.
"We also hope it will enable members interested in making art to develop their work (perhaps through our workshops!) and enter our exhibitions.
"Finally, we are very grateful for the support from The Arts Society (BE) towards our charitable education activities, such as our work with children from local disadvantaged areas.
"We are sure that working together more closely will be very beneficial for both The Arts Society (BE) and RBSA, and we look forward to welcoming you all to the Gallery." Robert Neil (President)
