Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2010 call for entries is now open and will run until 16 March 2010.
One of the founding principles of the Royal Academy of Arts was to ‘mount an annual exhibition open to all artists of distinguished merit’ to finance the training of young artists in the RA Schools. Now known as the Summer Exhibition and held every year without interruption since 1769, the exhibition attracts around 10,000 works, the selection being carried out by Academicians chaired by the President.
The Summer Exhibition is the largest open contemporary art exhibition in the world, drawing together a wide range of new work by both established and unknown living artists in all media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and architecture.
The majority of works are for sale.* Any artist may enter work for selection, and artists are strongly encouraged to enter work which is available for sale.
The entry has to be submitted by the 25th March 2010.
