Full members could become Russian artists with diplomas of the academic degrees (professors, academics, class artists of all degrees, class artists) and presenting their works at the annual exhibition.

Despite the participation of several well-known artists, and even part of the Wanderers, the overall level of the exhibitions was low, largely of-за the abundance of minor works. Art critic V. M. Garshin wrote in the review of the second exhibition of the society, held in 1877: "well in the end? Three good paintings, a few tolerable —. The rest is utterly sad. Sad fair, poor Society, feeding itself warmed paintings and new works cooking. Jasinski, Krasouski, Samoilov and others..."

However, at exhibitions AWHP was first made available to the public such works as "Luminaries of Christianity (Torches of Nero)" G. I. Semiradsky, "the feast of the transfer of the sacred carpet from Cairo to Mecca" K. E. Makovsky, Boyar p. P. Chistyakov (2-я exhibition, 1877), "the Virgin forest" Yu Yu Clover, "the Bazaar in the province" K. A. Trutovsky (4-я exhibition, 1880), "the monastery hotel" A. I. Korzukhin (6-я exhibition, 1882).

In total, participation in the exhibitions of the society took more than 60 artists. To raise the artistic level of the exhibitions, in 1882, adopted a new Charter providing for more stringent rules of admission to the society. The activities of the Association ceased in 1884 in connection with the resolution on the termination in the academic halls of any public exhibitions. The last meeting of members was held on 23 Nov 1884.
