In February 2017, a small group of local artists had the idea to use the beautiful space of St. Michael and All Angels Church as an art gallery with the aim of raising funds for local charities as well as showcasing local talent.
Since its inception in 2017, SMAG Art has run nine exhibitions representing gross art sales over £28,000 and raising circa £15000 for charitable causes.
Due to COVID-19, SMAG ART developed an online presence, SMAGArt.com, in May 2020 following the cancellation of all planned physical exhibitions. Incredibly, 166 pieces were showcased by 50 artists and 23 pieces were sold. This raised £1,500 for charity; £500 to St Michael’s Restoration Fund, and £1,000 to Greenwich Food Bank.
SMAG intend to maintain this online presence complementary to our physical exhibitions, for the foreseeable future.
SMAG’s most recent exhibition, SMAG 8 Physical, was held at St Michael’s church in June 2021. The show attracted over 300 visitors and led to the sale of 36 pieces of artwork valued at over £6,200.
Following the success of the June 2021 exhibition, SMAG is holding its next physical art exhibition from the 18th-27th November 2021 at St. Michael and All Angels Church, 1 Pond Road, Blackheath, SE3 9JL.
