The RWA's renowned Annual Open Exhibition returns for its 166th year with a stunning variety of work from emerging and established artists.

This dynamic and varied exhibition invites painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, installation and mixed media submissions and is a showcase of some of the most exciting artists from across the country and beyond.

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.
