The Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition has a well-earned reputation for attracting highly exciting young exhibitors, alongside the much admired, more established member artists. This year the trend will continue, with new artists and new discoveries waiting to be made.

The exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to see the many and varied ways in which artists use oil paint today, from a traditional approach to this highly technical media through to more innovative uses of material, style and content.

Offering valuable prizes such as The Phyllis Roberts Award (worth £2,000) and The Winsor & Newton Young Artist Awards, the ROI continues to lay the foundations for future generations to enjoy and achieve artistic expression with this most adaptable and durable medium. 

Unique to this year, the ROI presents a show within a show on the theme of ‘Community Spirit’, for which several members have put forward work that highlights cohesion and togetherness, “ … a perfect foil for the times of uncertainty and division in which we are currently living” (Tim Benson, President).

Also this year, the ROI is raffling three oil paintings by its members to raise funds for the Artists’ General Benevolent Institution (AGBI). For more information on the raffle, please visit the Institute's blog.
