The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol is currently preparing one of my favourite cultural events – the RWA Annual Open Exhibition.

The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol is inviting submissions for its 167th Annual Open Exhibition until 20th August 2019.

Submissions are open until 5pm on Tuesday 20th August.

The 167th Annual Open Exhibition will be open to the public from 29th September until 1st December 2019. Artists of all ages and experience are invited to submit.

They say: “A selection panel assesses every entry and last year 634 works by 413 artists made it into the final exhibition. All work is for sale, and the exhibition attracts art-lovers and art-buyers from far and wide. Submissions are welcome from unknown, emerging and established artists, including RWA Academicians.”

This year’s Selection Panel includes art historian and Artistic Director of the RA Tim Marlow, painter and performance artist Adelaide Damoah, renowned art collector John Talbot and award winning art writer and critic for The Telegraph Mark Hudson.

Applicants must enter online, submitting images using the Online Exhibition Submission System (OESS). The exhibition is a highlight of the cultural year.
