This is the fourteenth year of the National Students’ Art Exhibition held under the patronage of the Royal Society of British Artists. The exhibition is truly inspirational, featuring the best young artists in the country alongside work from some of the fines professional artists.
James Horton MA RBA (President) said: “The work chosen is carefully selected to represent the very best of what is being produced in schools across the nation. With one aim in mind, which is to send the strongest message possible to all our young artists that our society needs creative people, who will enrich the fabric of our culture and who will be taken seriously by professional bodies such as ours, and who will also become the next generation of respected professionals.”
