Admission £4, Free to Friends of Mall Galleries, RI Friends and under 18s

This exhibition is an annual survey of how contemporary artists are using this age-old medium and a great place to pick up vibrant, original works with prices starting from £350.

Showing a diversity of styles and techniques, from traditional uses of watercolours to more experimental and innovative paintings. Works on display are produced by members of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) and other artists whose pictures have been selected to hang alongside these by the RI Council, including many young painters using water-soluble media in often new and exciting ways.


The 207th Exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours also marks the release of a new 170-page hardback book covering the history of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI).
