Be Part of Art

Past, Present & Future of the Royal Watercolour Society

30 January – 3 February 2019
Bankside Gallery, London.

The RWS has a rich and fascinating history and our Archive & Collection comprising artworks and documents associated with its artists since the formation of the Society in 1804, demonstrates this.

For the first time, paintings, letters, photographs and countless other forms of historic ephemera will go on display in an exhibition at Bankside Gallery to raise awareness of the importance of the Royal Watercolour Society to the past, present and future of British art.

Accompanying this will be an auction of works by contemporary members and a secret postcard sale of works by countless influential British artists. All proceeds from sales will facilitate the renovation of the new RWS gallery space at Whitcomb Street, just off Trafalgar Square.

Water, Paper, Paint

IMG_1066aIt’s the final week of Water, Paper, Paint.

 Water, Paper, Paint, the Royal Watercolour Society’s Spring Exhibition, is a celebration of the three fundamental elements that create a watercolour painting.  From these three elements come a vast range of outcomes and in this show you will see huge variations in style, technique and genre.

24 MARCH – 22 APRIL Bankside Gallery, London.

London – A Sense of Place

Bankside Gallery

“London has been the home of the Royal Watercolour Society since its foundation in 1804.  Originally exhibiting in Pall Mall, then moving to Conduit Street in Mayfair (1938) before finally relocating to Bankside (1980), the Society has engaged with London for over 200 years.

Our artists have been inspired by its people, history, architecture, diversity and the many opportunities for artistic exploration and expression. London – A Sense of Place is a chance for the RWS to exhibit the works they have made in response to this extraordinary city.”

This annual summer exhibition is an opportunity for the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers to exhibit together and create a dynamic, ever-changing display of paintings and original prints. All works are sold ‘off the wall’ so you are able to take them away with you at the point of purchase. This results in an exhibition that you can visit throughout the summer, seeing new works every time.
