RBSA Open All Media 2019

14 March — 13 April 2019

Summary of the exhibition

As part of our charitable work to support artists the RBSA stages various open exhibitions annually. The Open All Media is one of the most popular and attracts entries from across the UK. It provides a range of artists with the opportunity to exhibit their work and be recognised for their talent. Works in all media except photography are accepted, including: jewellery, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, drawing, painting and printmaking.

The majority of artworks are for sale and are priced competitively, providing an excellent opportunity to find creative gifts or pieces for your home.
