The Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2022

We are pleased to welcome you to The Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2022.

Our exhibition showcases the works of the Society's members as well as selected works from the Society's recent open call.  This includes pieces by young and emerging artists - giving new talent the chance to shine and be recognised - as well as established professionals.

The skill and passion of the artists is reflected in the high quality of work on display.  We are sure that visitors will be able to find unique works that they would love to own and enjoy, from the wonderful variety of art in this exhibition.  This is a show where you will find a tremendous diversity of style, subject matter and media on display, with prices to suit every pocket.

What to Expect:

  • Workshops and demonstrations held by Society members to share their knowledge and techniques 
  • Over 400 works for sale
  • A team of dedicated professionals at your disposal to offer help and advice with your purchase if required

RBA Projects:

The encouragement of artists is one of the primary aims of the RBA.  With this in mind, this year the RBA offers:

  • RBA Rome Scholarship 2022 - a wonderful opportunity for artists who live, work or study in the UK and who are aged 35 years or under, to compete for a month in Rome - with cash prizes for 3 finalists
  • RBA RISING STARS – Forty semi-finalists for the Rome Scholarship showing their work in an exhibition at the Royal Over-Seas League in Central London
  • RBA Further Education Consortium - We created a consortium with 4 FE colleges from ‘disadvantaged’ areas of the UK - one each in Birmingham, Manchester, Hereford and Haringey in London.  We have funding from the Turing UK project to send 104 Further Education students, aged 16-19, [plus 16 accompanying teachers] to Europe.  The students will complete 3-week work placements in companies and organisations related to the creative industries.  Also included will be 4 recent graduates from each college, who will have 8-week internships.  This means that in total 120 young people will benefit from this experience

 About the Royal Society of British Artists

The Royal Society of British Artists was founded by a group of painters in 1823 and in 1887 the Society was granted the ‘Royal’ prefix.  The RBA has remained one of the world’s premier art societies and has attracted world-renowned artists as members for nearly 200 years.

The Royal Society of British Artists has attracted many noteworthy painters and sculptors, such as Phillip de László, LS Lowry and Henry Moore. Today there are just over 100 members, working with the highest standards of skill, expression and concept throughout the visual arts.
