Malcolm Ashman ROI RBA, Dartmoor Series, April 2015

The Royal Institute of Oil Painters  has a well earned reputation for attracting highly exciting young exhibitors, alongside the much admired, more established member artists at its annual exhibition. This year the trend will continue, with new artists and new discoveries waiting to be made, including the 16 shortlisted artists for the Winsor & Newton Young Artist Awards (for artists aged 35 or under).

The exhibition encompasses a wide variety of new and recent oil paintings, including works by ROI member and BBC Big Painting Challenge judge, Lachlan Goudie. Many artists use their work to record the world around them. There are some charming examples in this year’s exhibition: Susan Bower’s Midnight Cat depicts her cat ‘Mr Cooper Tibbles’ (who turned out to be a ‘Mrs’) not taking kindly to the protective coat the vet made her wear after being spayed; John Dobbs expressionistic paintings of diggers and building works, and John McCombs’ recent instalments of his series aiming to make a complete visual record of the village of Delph and the surrounding Pennine landscapes in which he lives before development spoils the character of the area.

With over 250 works on display, the exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to see the many and varied ways in which artists use oil paint today, from a traditional approach to this highly technical media through to more innovative uses of the material.

Offering valuable prizes such as The Phyllis Roberts Award (worth £2,000) and The Winsor & Newton Young Artists Awards, the ROI continues to lay the foundations for future generations to enjoy and achieve artistic expression with this most adaptable and durable medium as well as offering the chance to add new and original works to your collection.
