AGRA is a membership organisation that was set up in 1974 to promote realist art.
Its current membership consists of professional artists and talented amateurs. AGRA provides opportunities for artists to display and sell their work in its own galleries. The organisation supports artists in the development of their skills through classes and workshops, a variety of exhibitions and competitions judged by high calibre artists.
AGRA also hosts the annual Kenneth Jack Drawing Exhibition and runs its own Fine Art School. It produces a magazine and e-news and generally supports members in their artistic endeavours.
