Now Showing, entering final week:
MADE IN COLOUR
The Royal Watercolour Society’s Spring Exhibition, Made in Colour celebrates the huge variety of hues, shades and tones available to artists working in water-based media. Whether, transparent, opaque or somewhere in between, watercolour has the ability to be both light and soft or vibrant and bold. This exhibition will explore the many ways in which the Members of the RWS use colour in their practice.

The RWS Autumn Exhibition: Watercolour Journeys, explores one of the medium’s most fundamental qualities; its portability. Our artists have taken their palettes to the mountains of Nepal, tributaries of East Anglia, the Army bases of Afghanistan, the rocky cliffs of Pembrokeshire and the wilds of Texas, amongst many others.
