A visit to the RHA Annual Show
In town last week, I made time to pop into the RHA’s annual Exhibition. Always interesting as an artist. We get to ohh and ah, be wowed, sometimes snigger and occasionally guffaw!
The Royal Hibernian Academy Annual exhibition, now in it’s 184th year is the most ambitious public event in the Academy’s calendar. Ireland’s largest open submission exhibition includes painting, sculpture, print, photography, drawing and architectural models and it brings together the works of RHA members, invited artists and artists selected from open submission. The final works are selected from over 2,300 entries.
Here are just four of my own favourites. Excuse the dreadful photography as I was just using my phone.
