The RWA's renowned Annual Open Exhibition returns for its 168th 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.
All work is for sale, making the Annual Open a perfect opportunity to discover new artists or invest in well-known names.
Always popular with art lovers, last year’s spectacular exhibition attracted over 10,000 visitors. This year's Annual Open will include work by our invited artists Rebecca Salter PRA and Frank Bowling OBE RA as well as the RWA’s own Academicians.
A selection panel assesses every entry and last year 657 works by 451 artists made it into the final exhibition. This year's selectors include RWA Academicians Fiona Robinson, Ros Ford, Seyed Edalatpour and Wendy Elia, alongside artist and gallerist Zavier Ellis, writer and curator Anna McNay and Bridget Riley Art Foundation Curator at the British Museum Isabel Seligman.
