SOCIETY’S EXHIBITION AT
THE GROSVENOR GALLERY.
(First Article.)

The last exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Exhi-
bition Society was held in January and February,
1910, at the New Gallery in Regent Street, which
at that time had already been disposed of by
its original proprietors and was destined in the
future to be used for purposes widely different
from those for which it was originally designed.
As soon as it was vacated by the Arts and Crafts
Society the destruction of the New Gallery as a
place of exhibition was commenced, and it was
not long before the rooms in which so many in-
teresting shows had been held were turned into a
restaurant. Galleries suitable for important ex-
hibitions are comparatively rare in London, and
the President of the Arts and Crafts Society in the
preface to the catalogue of the exhibition of 1910
expressed his misgivings as to the possibility of
finding suitable headquarters in the future. Mr.
Walter Crane, who is of a sanguine and hopeful
spirit where art is concerned, hinted that it would
not be amiss for the nation to provide some per-
manent home for periodic exhibitions of art and
craftsmanship which might be some guide in taste
to the public and also help to maintain a standard
in workmanship. It was at the same time suggested
in these, and I believe in other columns, that the
London County Council, which owns and controls

so many schools of arts and crafts, might give some
aid in this direction or that the Royal Academy
might lend some of their rooms for exhibition
purposes. However, nothing was done and the
Arts and Crafts Society might have been homeless
