Hand in of work taking place on 6 and 7 April 2018.

Applications are now open for Ireland’s oldest and largest open submission exhibition, the 188th RHA Annual Exhibition. Open to all artists working in paint, drawing, print, sculpture, photography and architecture, the RHA Annual attracts a large public and critical audience. With sales in excess of €480,000 in 2017, the Annual is also a key event of the art calendar for both public and private buyers.

RHA will take 35% commission on work sold during the 2018 exhibition. Last year they took 40% in order to raise funds for their bank repayment due in June 2018 which is €350,000, they raised €100,000. To this they can add funds raised from other sources of €150,000, however RHA still need to secure the final €100,000. So for this year in the 188th Annual RHA are seeking 35% commission from all of the participating artists in the exhibition including RHA members and invited artists to raise the final tranche.

Please Note: You can submit up to three pieces and each piece costs €15 to submit.
