Artists are invited to submit work for exhibition alongside members of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters at the ROI Annual Exhibition 2021.

The Royal Institute of Oil Painters seeks work in oils and is the only national art society devoted to oil painting. This year’s mini-theme is ‘Rebirth’, which can be interpreted widely. Selected works on the theme will be hung together as a special display within the show. N.B. The theme is optional, one aspect of a larger exhibition, to which oil paintings of all subjects, in any style, are welcome for consideration.
