RUA Annual Exhibition: Call for Submissions – closing 31 July

Royal Ulster Academy of Arts: 139th RUA Annual Exhibition

Call for Submissions

Founded in 1879, the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts is the largest and longest established body of practising visual artists in Northern Ireland. One of its founding principles is to organise, promote or join in organising and promoting an Annual Exhibition of work by both members and non–members.

This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions the RUA cannot guarantee that an exhibition will take place at the Ulster Museum. However, planning is still going ahead, keeping within Government guidelines, but on a reduced scale so that “Social Distancing” can be maintained. If it is not possible to hold a physical exhibition on this occasion, then it may be possible to create a virtual exhibition from members and non-members selected works.

First or Single Entry Price: £18.00
Up to 2 artworks: £35.00

Recommended age: 16+
