The January Sales can be exhausting… but over at the RBSA we have three floors of stunning art in our tranquil, inviting galleries.
You could buy a new toaster online, but we reckon a work of art will give you far more pleasure. So why not head on over to our current StArt exhibition, or make a note to join the queue for our Studio Sale on 26 January?
And make sure you don’t miss out on our latest season of art classes, starting this February.
Happy New Year!
StArt Until 9 February
Ryan Everson, ‘Venus’
Original artworks under £300 are on display in this exhibition by our Members and Associates aimed at those new to collecting art who may be just starting to build a collection. Three floors of fantastic art, all at amazing prices!
Studio Sale Saturday 26 January
Arrive early for a good place in the now-legendary queue for one of our most popular annual events. All proceeds from our sale of art go towards keeping the Gallery running and open to everyone, with no admission prices and a varied programme through the year. Bag yourself a print, painting, drawing and more!
until 2 Feb 2019

Inspired by the wonder and mystery of stars and space, this display is unashamedly focused on all things bright, twinkly, and sparkly. Featuring hand-made jewellery in precious metals, ceramics and lustrous glazes, and textiles in plush fabrics, with a range of prices.
Art Workshops 11 – 22 February
Eric Gaskell will be leading a printing workshop…
Get ahead with those New Year resolutions by booking a place on one of our popular art classes. You get the benefit of close tuition from an experienced art practitioner, plus art materials and refreshments on the day, and discounts for those in education or Members, Associates or Friends of the RBSA.
See the website for the full workshop programme.
