About the Club

The Artists Club, Liverpool is a private members’ club. It was founded in 1877 and has occupied premises in the centre of Liverpool since 1889.

It remains true to its original purpose which is to provide an environment where the artist community can associate with the business and professional community of the City in convivial circumstances. The Club is renowned for its friendliness and warm informality.

A unique feature of the Club is its collection of portraits of its Presidents. Every President since 1889 has had his portrait painted in oils by an artist member. The full collection is hung in the Club. The Club mounts about six art exhibitions every year. These feature the work of Artist members or artists working in the northwest.
