The Guild was formed in 1971 and is recognised throughout the world as the premier society for the promotion of aviation art. It brings together the worlds of art and aviation in a common interest group and stages exhibitions and events throughout the UK.
The Guild has affiliation links with societies and associations in the USA, Canada and France.
Our Annual 'Aviation Paintings of the Year' Exhibition, held in London each July and open to both members and non-members, is the highlight of the Guild's year and attracts hundreds of visitors from all over the world. The Annual is eagerly anticipated by buyers looking for an opportunity to purchase new original works by distinguished artists and rising stars. Many awards and prizes are presented to contributing artists.
Over 5,000 paintings hung at the Guild's Annual Exhibitions over the past 14 years can be viewed through this site. Click here to view the Gallery pages.
