163rd Annual Open Exhibition
4 October – 29 November 2015


The RWA’s Annual Open Exhibition – now in its 163rd year – is a highlight of the region’s art calendar.  Attracting leading artists from throughout the UK, it is open to all, and often includes work by previously un-shown exhibitors alongside well-known names. A selection panel assesses every entry and this year 593 works by 386 artists have made it into the final exhibition. The exhibition also includes a major work by this year’s invited artist, Rose Hilton, who is the RWA’s latest Honorary Academician.
