Free exhibition opportunity for early-career artists! At the RBSA

Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) are currently accepting entries for their forthcoming Next Wave exhibition. Natalie Osborne writes:

  • Next Wave: The first Next Wave project took place in 2014. It was an entirely new project for the RBSA and was designed to help support and promote emerging and early-career artists up to ten years post-qualification. It also aimed to create a very different-looking exhibition to add to the variety of our annual programme. The RBSA has now made Next Wave a biennial project and so we hope to achieve the same aims for 2016.
  • How to apply (deadline is Monday 25 April): For the application pack for Next Wave, please see our website: http://rbsa.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/next-wave-exhibition-1/ (download the pack by clicking the download in the upper right of the screen).
  • Type of work accepted: This exhibition accepts work in all media, including photography. To give you an idea of the type of work our Next Wave exhibitions tend to include, please see the shots of our 2014 show on our website: http://rbsa.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/next-wave-exhibition/
