“RBA RISING STARS” – an investment in the future
In this exhibition, The Framers Gallery and the Royal Society of British Artists are showcasing some of the most talented young artists of today and tomorrow.
We have brought together works from school 6th forms and colleges as well as works by artists aged under 35 years from all over the country. This exhibition gives an overview of the strength and depth of artistic ability, combined with intrinsic flair and creativity that exists throughout Britain today.
The Arts Society has compiled the work of the younger artists. The other artists are the semi-finalists competing for the Rome Scholarship offered by the RBA – this will enable the winner to spend a month at Sala Uno, a prestigious gallery in the centre of Rome where board, lodging and gallery workshop space will be available.
We are grateful to The Framers Gallery and Renaissance London, who are helping to sponsor this show and to LARA, who are offering a prize of a short course at one of their atelier to a winning candidate.
We hope that some of the young people exhibiting in this show will progress to become valued members of the RBA in the future and will continue to produce exciting work to inspire and delight their audience.
