RBA Rising Stars at ROSL
30 Apr 2019 - 12:51 BY The Arts Society
On Thursday, 25 April 2019 young artists from across the UK attended a preview event to see their artwork on display at London's Royal Over-Seas League.
Developed with the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), the RBA Rising Stars competition encourages aspiring young artists who are identified and entered by The Arts Society's local Societies. The RBA then selects the very best pieces for exhibition in London.
The 21 finalists were chosen for their exceptional artworks which combine the highest levels of skill, expression and draughtsmanship using a variety of mediums, exploring equally varied subjects. This year 36 Societies submitted 247 works so the RBA council had difficult choices to make.
The 21 students selected for the RBA Rising Stars 2019 are:
Genevieve Aspinall, Robert Bowman, Tia Brown, Meg Burridge, Grace Burns, Isabel Collins, Anna Ellerbeck, Holly Gallant, Rachel Howarth, George Hunt, Nadia Jenkins, Francesca Krum, George Lees O'Neil, Amber Li, Livia Robinson, Megan Rodger, Olivia Marshall, Robert Mill, Abigail Morton, Maisy Venn, and Beth Whell.
The first of two exhibitions is now on show at the Royal Over-Seas League, London.
