The RWA's renowned Annual Open Exhibition returns for its 167th year with a stunning variety of work from emerging and established artists.

As the name suggests, anyone can enter their work for this mixed discipline show. In previous years the works on display have spanned painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, film, sculpture and illustration, and attracted entries from artists across the UK and beyond.

A selection panel assesses every entry and last year 634 works by 413 artists made it into the final exhibition. Submissions are welcome from unknown, emerging and established artists, including RWA Academicians.
