From the moment you arrive in the Wohl Central Hall and see Cake Man (II) by Yinka Shonibare RA you know that this year’s show will have colour.

What makes the Summer Exhibition so special are the viewers and their reaction to the paintings and works on display.  Amazement, awe, wonder, admiration, humour, praise and deprecation are all reactions one sees and hears.

That’s what makes the show such fun for it allows the viewer to go and make their own mind up about what they are seeing. There are no guidelines or informed views to follow, it’s up to YOU.  You decide which are good, bad or indifferent in the huge variety of artworks exhibited there and don’t forget many of them are for sale too and as you will discover they get snapped up quickly.
