The 207th Exhibition of the Royal Institute will be held as in previous years at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1, from 3-18 April, open 10am to 5pm daily. The RI was formed to exhibit the best watercolours and to show non-members’ works alongside the individual collections by Members, a policy that is upheld today. Works by Candidates seeking membership will also be prominently displayed and this year we set a new record for non-members’ paintings of just over 38%.
The exhibition will feature a wide variety of talks and demonstrations by RI Members and the presentation of many Awards and Prizes, including three new awards: the Baohong Artists’ Watercolour Award, the Chaoshan Watercolour Award and the Richard Plincke RI Prize for Colour.
For a full list of prizes and awards please visit the exhibitions page under RI 2018 – How to enter : http://royalinstituteofpaintersinwatercolours.org/ri-2019-how-to-enter/
The Exhibition will be officially opened at the Private View on Tuesday 2 April by art critic, writer and broadcaster Anthony J. Lester; and the RI President Rosa Sepple RI.
This year’s exhibition promises to be another cornucopia of light, colour and texture not to be missed!
