This year the RSA Open Exhibition will be back in the entire RSA Lower Galleries and will be on throughout the world famous Edinburgh Festival!

After having been part of the RSA Annual Exhibition for over 180 years, it now enjoys its own slot in the RSA Calendar. Drawing from artists across the whole of Scotland and beyond, this exhibition showcases nearly 400 works annually and features a wide range of small and medium sized works (max. 80cm in any direction) selected through open submission including paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs.

With all works for sale, the RSA Open presents a wonderful opportunity for collectors and first-time buyers. The RSA is part of the Own Art Scheme which provides interest-free credit to any eligible buyers spending between £100-£2500, making it easier than ever to invest in contemporary art.

The RSA Open Exhibition is proud to offer over £3,500 pounds worth of prizes and awards to exhibiting artists in partnership with a range of leading arts organisations and providers across the UK. Click here for the list of awards.

ARTISTS PLEASE NOTE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM WILL GO LIVE WEEK BEGINNING MONDAY 20 MARCH 2017. Please go to our opportunities page for more information.
