Royal Academy - 250th Summer Exhibition

Royal Academy - 250th Summer Exhibition

250! I wish anyone interested in art could visit the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition at least once. I've been lucky enough to visit a few of them over the years, there is nothing I love more than aimlessly walking around rooms full of artwork with nothing else to think about. 

"Grayson Perry RA coordinates the biggest, brightest and most colourful Summer Exhibition yet, in our 250th annual celebration of “art made now”."

The element I most love about all the exhibitions that go on within their galleries is that you find future artist talent. Don't get me wrong, there's a huge amount of art created by Internationally renowned artists as well. There's something special about viewing artwork that might not have been shown anywhere else publicly.

There are over 1,300 artworks to browse, using a variety of mediums. Hopefully some are purchased from ARTdiscount! Whether your preference is Watercolour or Sculpture work, there will certainly be something for you to be captivated by.

The Summer Exhibition is spread across a newly-expanded campus, this really is a day out. When you get home from a day at the Summer Exhibition, I can assure you you'll feel artistically inspired. Is there a better feeling than that?

"Come along with a sketchbook on a quiet Monday morning, have a drink with your friends in the galleries on a Friday night, bring the family to our free weekend festival or join our biggest ever RA Late in full fancy dress. As always, most of the art is for sale and purchases help raise money for the Academy’s non-profit-making activities, including educating the next generation of artists in the  Royal Academy Schools." - RA Summer Exhibition

Have I sold it to you? I hope so!

Head to the Royal Academy website to find out more, hop on the train or grab a tube ride to central London.

Not that long ago companies didn't have traceability in their own supply chains, and they were not proactive about sustainability, thankfully that is changing!  Many companies are now contributing to a healthier planet and developing eco friendly and animal cruelty free strategies to develop their products.
