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.

The exhibition is sourced from member artists and through open submission, to produce works of the highest standard brought together in an eclectic mix of style and media. The show also includes entries from the finalists for the Society’s prestigious Rome Scholarship, as well as work produced by the recipient of the Rome Scholarship from the previous year.

Most works are for sale.
