Over 12,000 paintings are submitted each year
to the prestigious
Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Only 800 pictures finally
make it onto the walls of the Royal Academy.
‘A SECOND CHANCE’
The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, inspired by the original ‘Salon
des Refusés’ held in Paris in the 19th century, will hang the best
of this year’s work submitted to the Royal Academy but not hung.
Hundreds of artists bring their work for a further selection process
at the Gallery where they will be told immediately whether they
have been successful or not. Oils, watercolours and pastels of all
sizes pass through the doors of this lively Gallery on the South
Bank. Every painting is for sale and may be taken by the
purchaser straight away, creating space for another to be
displayed. All paintings will be on show for three weeks, after
which new work will be hung. Over the years purchasers have
returned again and again, commenting that this alternative exhibition contains
more original and exciting work!
is open from 10am until 7.30pm, Tuesday to Saturday giving the
opportunity for everyone to see this regularly changing show.
