Frank Bowling & Basil Beattie | 250th Summer Exhibition | Royal Academy of Arts

May 11, 2018

Hales is delighted to announce the inclusion of works by Frank Bowling & Basil Beattie in the Royal Academy of Arts 250th Summer Exhibition


This summer, Grayson Perry RA coordinates the biggest, brightest and most colourful Summer Exhibition yet, in the 250th annual celebration of “art made now”. Each summer, the galleries are jam-packed with contemporary art made by artists from all walks of life. A world-famous show unlike any other, the Summer Exhibition draws together works by internationally renowned artists, exciting new talent and first-time exhibitors. 


In its 250th year, the show will be the cultural highlight of the season, spilling out of the RA and onto the streets of London’s West End. An art extravaganza, there’ll be a monumental sculpture in our courtyard and artworks in an array of mediums throughout our galleries, all handpicked by a committee led by Grayson Perry RA. With over 1,200 works on display, you’ll see art you love, art you hate, art that leaves you thinking and art that simply puts a smile on your face.


As always, most of the art is for sale and purchases help raise money for the non-profit making areas of the Academy, including the Royal Academy Schools.
