People who have saved this event:



The Autumn open exhibition is one of the oldest RWA traditions, and generates the biggest exhibition of new and recent work by unknown, emerging and established artists. Featuring a huge variety of styles, media and subject matter, there is one element uniting this eclectic mix —each work is of the very highest standard. For the 159th consecutive year, the best sculpture, paintings, architectural designs, photography and printmaking will be chosen anonymously by a panel of RWA Academicians and curators. Almost 2000 pieces of work were entered last year, one third of which made it onto the walls of the RWA galleries. Most works featured in the exhibition are for sale, and the sheer scale of the exhibition means there is work to suit nearly all tastes and budgets. Our participation in the Own Art scheme makes the RWA the ideal place to buy art — you can borrow £100-2000 to be paid back in equal instalments over a period of 10 months, interest free. All selected works appear in the exhibition catalogue, available from the RWA shop.
