The Friends of the RWA Biennial Exhibition (and how to enter)

This April the Friends will be taking over two galleries at the RWA for the Biennial Exhibition. The entry deadline is 2 April…

If you enjoy the annual Open Exhibition then this is very much for you: scores of artworks including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures will be free to browse in the Cube and Link galleries.

All the artworks will be available to buy.

The selection panel includes RWA Vice President Stephen Jacobson and Andy Phipps, who runs That Art Gallery on Christmas Steps.


Entering the Friends’ Exhibition

Friends can enter up to four artworks at a cost of £10 per entry (non-returnable). Entry packs including full terms and conditions were mailed out before Christmas, and labels in the latest newsletter –  but you can also pick the forms up at the RWA Welcome desk.

Here are some of the key dates:


Entry form with payment deadline: Tuesday 2 April– 5pm
