Annual Exhibition 2019

Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition The Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) seeks work in oils and is the only national art society devoted to oil painting. This year’s Annual Exhibition will include a 'show-within-the-show’ of paintings on the theme of “London”, to which members and non-members alike are invited to submit works for consideration. It is hoped that the display will capture the country’s capital city in all its character and complexity through the eyes of contemporary artists, and complement the broader exhibition of more varied subjects in the same medium.

139th Annual Open Exhibition

RSW 139th Annual Open Exhibition Call for Entries Artists working in water-based media across the UK are invited to apply to be part of the largest display of Water-based work in Scotland. The RSW believes that painting using thin films of water based pigment is a unique skill, the mastery of which confirms the painter's commitment to their art. For the viewer, the primacy of such skill conveys a particular richness, and for those who use the medium themselves, the art watercolour provides a direct inspiration. To this end, in our membership, exhibitions, prize giving and all other activities we will curate to promote this singular and beautiful technique.
