Artist Network Exhibition 2023

Artist Network Exhibition 2023

25 April - 21 May 2023


RWA, Queen's Road, Bristol


25 April - 21 May 2023


This group exhibition features work by members of the RWA Artist Network, which consists of nearly 100 practising visual artists from Bristol and the South West seeking to develop their careers as painters, printmakers, photographers and sculptors. The Network offers the opportunity for members to make links and socialise with other practitioners, including our Academician body, to promote themselves and their work, and to contribute to exhibitions such as this. 

The RWA’s vision for the future is to create a 21st century gallery for all, providing a unique resource within the South West region. Our Artist Network is key to this, contributing to and engaging with the RWA’s dynamic artistic community, and thereby becoming the next generation to shape the future of Bristol’s first established art gallery. 

This exhibition showcases the breadth of talent amongst the Artist Network members, and presents a unique snapshot of contemporary visual art by local artists, and will be the first Artist Network exhibition since the RWA capital project.

The exhibition will take place in the Youngwood Room, Link space and corridor which are located on the lower ground floor at the RWA.
