The Royal West of England Academy
165 Annual Open Exhibition


The Royal West of England Academy holds an Annual Open Exhibition, now in its 165th year. As the name suggests, anyone can enter their work for this mixed discipline show - previous years have included painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, film, sculpture and illustration, and attracted entries from artists across the UK and beyond. A selection panel assesses every entry and last year 575 works by 382 artists made it into the final exhibition. All work is for sale and the exhibition attracts art-lovers and art-buyers from far and wide.

Entry Deadline: 21 August 2017 Monday 5pm (BST)
