The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours is one of the oldest societies of professional watercolour painters. The aims of the society are: to promote painting in watercolours; to encourage the use and development of water based mediums and to present the work of its best exponents in its annual exhibitions. The RI is based in London but its members come from all over the UK and beyond.
This year's RI exhibition at the Mall Galleries will be opened by the well know writer and lecturer, Dr Alan Powers. He is joint editor of the journal Twentieth Century Architecture and Chairman of Pollocks Toy Museum in London. Dr Powers, a popular speaker, has written several books on twentieth century British artists.
There are only a few days left until the final Receiving Days for the RI exhibition at the Mall Galleries the deadline is the weekend of 21st and 22nd February (see our How to Exhibit page for full details).
