RBSA Summer Show
The RBSA Summer Show is an open call that invites artists working in any media to submit work.
Dating back to the very start of its history, the first RBSA open call exhibition was held in 1814. This first show was open to artists from within a 30 mile radius of the city, a restriction that no longer remains in place. RBSA open call exhibitions now receive submissions from artists based all around the world and give contemporary artists the opportunity to showcase their work in an institution that, for more than 200 years, has worked to support artists.
This year, the Gallery received an unprecedented number of submissions from a diverse range of artists. Selection of the work for the RBSA Summer Show was undertaken by an experienced panel of RBSA Members who selected work based on its quality and interest.
