Mall Galleries Exhibitions: changes to deadlines for entries and exhibition dates

The Annual Exhibitions of Art Societies at the Mall Galleries have changed dates.

The Mall Glleries and associated societies (members of the Federation of British Artists) have made changes to
  • deadlines for the call for entries and 
  • dates of exhibitions.

This is a result of the ongoing very high of covid infection in London and the ongoing Lockdown. These mean there is no certainty about when exhibitions will start again. 

I've listed what I know below.

Art Society Exhibitions

The Pastel Society (PS)

Despite entries having been received and a selection made of artwork to be included in the Annual Exhibition, the current lockdown means that The Annual Exhibition of the Pastel Society has had to be postponed. 

There's no information as yet as to likely dates for the Pastel Society Annual Exhibition, My guess would be later in the year.

However

Royal Society of British Artists (RBA)


The Annual Exhibition of the Royal Society of British Artists is usually early in the year and in 2020, this exhibition escaped unscathed from the impact of Covid-19 on art exhibitions in 2020.
Nevertheless, in 2021, it's one of the first affected.


  • Call for Entries (digital only)
    • moved back a month to 12 noon on Friday 5th February
    • I thought I'd done a Call for Entries blog post for the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2021 - but apparently not so I'll remedy that this week.
  • Delivery dates: Saturday 27 March and Sunday 28 March, 10am to 5pm
  • Annual Exhibition: 15h - 24th April 2021

This is an exhibition well worth entering - not least for the very long list of prizes awarded!

Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI)

Below is an announcement by Rosa Sepple, President of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours.


The RI is now quite adept at coping with moving dates - their exhibition only opened after a third attempt in 2020. See my review of the 2020 exhibition (moved from April to September 2020) Review: 208th Exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours
