WORK by Roger Griffiths has been chosen from 700 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading watercolour artists.

The annual exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours held at the Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square will be on held from March 30 to April 10. The institute holds an annual open submission exhibition in central London.

Founded in the mid 19th Century, it has come to be recognised as one of the leading national institutions for watercolour painters, spanning figurative, abstract and experimental work. This all makes for an exciting display, and is a popular place to buy outstanding work by living artists.
