AB Holmes – searcher, Oil on Panel, 40cm x 50cm
Opening next week at the Mall Galleries in Central London, the Royal Institute of OiI Painters (ROI) will be showing this year’s selection of members’ paintings together with just over one hundred pieces chosen from the open submission to be included in the exhibition. The selections were made earlier in the autumn.
Andrew Holmes’s painting of a bather – searcher – will be showing in this year’s selection and we were delighted to receive this notification. The Mall Galleries offers a wonderful exhibition space, benefitting from recently refurbishment including a raised ceiling and lighting system which provides visitors an excellent opportunity to view the artworks at their best. To add to the experience, the gallery is located in a most beautiful area of London.
It’s always lovely to have an excuse to drop by and especially to enjoy the stunning christmas lights London has on display at this time of the year. However, we’re particularly looking forward to visiting the Preview on the evening of the 29th, as we will be joined by good friends, artists Aldo Balding and Sarah Spence, who also have paintings selected to be in the exhibition.

The ROI is a long established Art Institution with many well-known artists listed in their membership and this exhibition allows the members to further engage with and encourage new artists. They say:
“The Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition has a well earned reputation for attracting highly exciting young exhibitors, alongside the much admired, more established member artists. This year the trend will continue, with new artists and new discoveries waiting to be made.
The exhibition is open from November 30th to the 11th of December gives visitors the opportunity to see the many and varied ways in which artists use oil paint today, from a traditional approach to this highly technical media through to more innovative uses of material, style and content.”
