RSA OPEN EXHIBITION 2014- ART

The RSA Open Exhibition has a long history of celebrating the best of contemporary practice. 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 in the RSA’s Lower Galleries showcases a wide range of small and medium sized works (max. 80cm in any direction) selected through open submission and includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs.

Eagerly anticipated by artists from across the country, expect a diverse and exciting variety of works on show. With nearly 400 well-priced artworks on show each year, and the availability of the ever-popular Own Art scheme, this exhibition is a terrific opportunity to make a purchase from this prestigious exhibition just in time to get on the walls for Christmas!

CALL TO ARTISTS – NEW SUBMISSION PROCEDURES
This year the RSA is trialling a new online digital submission process. Used by many other arts organisations this will hopefully make it much easier for artists to submit work to the exhibition and greatly reduce the number of works having to be transported to the galleries.

Online Registration
Online registration is now closed. Artists will not be able to make changes to their submissions and new entries will not be allowed.

Pre-Selection
A number of works have been pre-selected online by the RSA Hanging and Selection Committee in advance of the hand in day. Pre-Selected artists are invited to deliver their works to the RSA. Artists are not allowed to hand in different or substitute works to those that have been pre-selected. There will be a final selection of works in the gallery after hand-in.

Please let us know if you have any queries regarding the new online application process: 0131 624 6110
