Works are chosen by a selection panel, which this year includes gallery director, curator and artist Zavier Ellis; art writer Laura Gascoigne; critic and curator of the Jerwood Collection Lara Wardle; RWA President Stewart Geddes, and Academicians Stephen Jacobson, Fiona Robinson, Elizabeth Turrell and Chris Dunseath.

All work is for sale, making the Annual Open a perfect opportunity to discover new artists or invest in well known names.
