About

Following in an RBSA tradition that dates back to 1814, the RBSA Summer Show is an open call exhibition that welcomes submissions from artists working in any media. However, unlike that first exhibition which was only open to artists from within a 30-mile radius of the city, today the RBSA receives entries from artists based all around the world.

Artists are given the opportunity to showcase their work in Birmingham’s foremost contemporary art gallery and, for those exhibiting at the RBSA Gallery for the first time, it can signify the beginning of their journey with one of the oldest art societies in the country.

The RBSA Summer Show takes place over all three floors of the Gallery, making it our largest open call exhibition of the year. With over 250 artworks on display, the Summer Show is a celebration of a wide variety of media and techniques showcasing work by artists of enormous talent.

This year’s exhibition was selected by:

  • Ed Isaacs RBSA
  • John Scott Martin PPRBSA
  • Joan Sharma RBSA

Selection of work will be based on quality and interest.

The exhibition will be opened by Michael Harrison, the President of the Royal Society of British Artists.

The following prizes will be awarded:

  • First prize £500
  • Second prize £250
  • Up to six highly commended certificates will also be awarded

Prizes generously donated by Clive Beardsmore, Friend of the RBSA.

Private View: Wednesday 12 June 6.00 – 8.00pm
Artists’ Talk: Saturday 22 July 2.00 – 3.00pm
