Formed in 1898, with a membership comprised of "Workers in the Arts", the objectives of the Scottish Society of Art Workers were to hold exhibitions of art works and to arrange for lectures and practical demonstrations to be held. The Society had no formal place of meeting and met at the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow, Scotland; the Glasgow Institute of Architects, Glasgow; and various of the members offices. It was to be exclusive and was mostly comprised of artists from the West of Scotland. Members included James A Morris, Ruby Pickering, Fra. Newbery, John Keppie, Phoebe Traquair, James Watt, A.N. Paterson, Jessie M. King, Agnes Raeburn and Jessie Newbery.
