The Suffolk Fine Arts Association held its [first] exhibition on Wednesday 20 August 1850, at the New Lecture Hall of the Mechanics' Institution, Ipswich. At two o'clock in the afternoon, there was a private view for subscribers, when upwards of 100 were in attendance. At 8 o'clock in the evening, the Converzatione took place, which lasted until nearly eleven o'clock, affording much gratification to those by whom it was attended. Lighted up with gas, the hall had a brilliant appearance. The Committee appeared to have been indefatigable in giving due éclat to the exhibition; the whole of the productions having been arranged with great taste, and with every disposition to set off the merits of the respective artists to the greatest advantage. Of the character of the exhibition, it was pronounced to have been first-rate, and far exceeding the expectations of its promoters. The landscapes, in oil, were regarded the most valuable, though the productions in water-colours contained a great number of very fine specimens. The London artists seem to have contributed the great bulk. Next in order came the productions of the Norwich artists, whilst the Ipswich artists, in point of number of contributors, stood third. As regards the latter, the deficiency created no surprise, this being the first exhibition of the kind in Ipswich. The success of the experiment this year, will, no doubt, act as a stimulus for the future.
