NOT The Royal Academy 2017

A Salon des RefusÚs

13 June – 19 August 2017
Now in its 27th year!

Constantly changing exhibition of work submitted to the 2017 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Thousands enter but few are chosen.  Over 12,000 paintings are submitted each year to the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Hundreds of artists receive a rejection slip in the post to say that their work will not be hung in this major show. 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 RefusÚs" 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 (opposite the Old Vic Theatre).

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!

The gallery is open from 10am - 7.30pm Tuesday - Saturday inclusive, giving the opportunity for everyone to see this regularly changing show.

Paintings will be on view here from 13 June 2017
