The Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition has a well-earned reputation for attracting highly exciting young exhibitors, alongside the much admired, more established member artists. This year the trend will continue, with new artists and new discoveries waiting to be made.
Spanning painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation and video, the selected works will be shown at the historic Bishop’s Palace & Gardens in Wells, Somerset, from 6 - 21 October 2018, and prizes - which include cash, exhibition and professional development prizes - will be presented at a private ceremony on Friday 12 October 2018.
Wells Art Contemporary, a leading open exhibition for international contemporary art, is proud to announce the artists selected for the 2018 exhibition. Following an international open call, 123 works by 118 artists were selected from a total of 1,397 submissions from 26 different countries, the highest number of entries in the history of the Awards.
