Past, Present & Future of the Royal Watercolour Society

30 January - 3 February 2019
Secret Postcard Sale: Tuesday 29 January, 6pm Auction: Saturday 2 February, 6pm

Bankside Gallery Open daily 1am-6pm Free Admission

The Royal Watercolour Society has a rich and fascinating history and the Archive & Diploma Collection, which comprises artworks and documents associated with its artists since the formation of the Society in 1804, demonstrates this. In January 2019 paintings, letters, photographs and many other forms of historic ephemera will go on display for the first time in an exhibition at Bankside Gallery, the home of the RWS, to raise awareness of its importance to the past, present and future of British art.
Accompanying this will be an auction of works by contemporary members and a secret postcard sale of works by numerous influential British artists. All proceeds from sales will facilitate the renovation of the new RWS gallery space at Whitcomb Street, just of Trafalgar Square.
