"Founded in 1823, the RBA has been at the vanguard of promoting a truly eclectic mixture of art. However, unadulterated artistic talent has always been the Society’s philosophy and while fashions come and go, the RBA is still here to celebrate their 300th exhibition!" - Anthony J Lester FRSA, Member of the International Association of Art Critics: The Critics’ Circle

The Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of skill, concept and draughtsmanship in painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. This year's Annual Exhibition is the Society's 300th show.

Sourced from member artists and through open submission, the exhibition also includes selected work from schools and colleges around the country. The show also includes entries from the four finalists for the Society’s prestigious Rome Scholarship award, as well as work produced by the recipient of the Rome Scholarship from the previous year.

Most works are for sale.


Want to receive an invitation to the Private View, unlimited free entry to the exhibition for you and a guest with a complimentary catalogue, plus more? Find out about becoming a Friend of Mall Galleries.
