The 208th annual exhibition of the RI

The 208th Exhibition of the Royal Institute will be held as in previous years at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1, from 2-17 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. With a total of 444 paintings in the exhibition the RI continues to be a truly open exhibition, with 44% of the works in the show by non-members!
