NOT The Royal Academy Show

Have You Been Rejected By The Royal Academy Of Arts This 2014?

NOT The Royal Academy returns to give you a second chance.

Inspired by the original “Salon des Refuses” held in 19th century Paris the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery will hang a selection of this year’s work submitted to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition but not chosen to be hung.  This is not a given as it were and you will have to go through yet another selection process but will be told immediately if you have been successful  If your pride can handle it then go for it!

After all over 8,000 paintings are submitted to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition each year yet only 800 make the cut.  There just isn’t room for us all on those renowned walls and many rejection letters will go out.

How Do I Enter The NOT The Royal Academy Show?

The gallery ask that you send jpegs of your work to them as soon as possible.  The exhibition will be start on the 21st May 2014 and all work will be shown for three weeks, after which new work will be hung.  Each painting will be for sale and if sold could be taken by the buyer immediately so that new work can be hung.

You can’t say fairer than that can you?  Buyers have returned time and time again.  In fact this exhibition has gained a reputation for showing more original and challenging artwork than the original!

As soon as you receive your rejection letter send your images to
