RA Summer Exhibition 2015 (Online!)
I haven’t posted anything on art for such a long time, that I have almost forgotten how to do this (I haven’t posted anything at all for a week, which is unheard of… once again too much on my hands at the moment). The best way, I guess, is to show you loads of visual material, as art is usually a feast for one’s eyes, right? So…
You must have heard of the RA Summer Exhibition, haven’t you?
If you haven’t – it’s the largest open art exhibition in the world, which means that EVERYONE is welcome to submit their artwork. I found out about it several years ago and fell in love with the idea. Don’t you think that an opportunity to show your work together with someone already famous (or even better with an artist whose work you admire) is extremely tempting? But… you must be prepared to spend some money (from memory entry fee is 25 pounds and you can submit no more than 2 of your masterpieces) and, of course, to face the rejection bravely (there must be thousands of people trying to become the chosen ones).
I’ve never been to this exhibition. The closest I got to it was when I was thinking of buying their catalogue last year – I must admit I’m even more curious than a standard cat, yet somehow that time I managed to keep my purse shut (not sure why). And what do I find out this year? That you can see this exhibition online! All of the 1131 artworks – simply click here.
Here are some pieces that caught my eye browsing some of the categories that were presented on the RA website (next post will be about my personal favourites, I just need to find the time to look at all 1131 exhibits...)
