135th ANNUAL EXHIBITION
The Royal Ulster Academy’s 135th Annual Exhibition has now closed following a three month run at the Ulster Museum, Belfast. Once again this event was sponsored generously by KPMG, the leading Accounting and Professional Advisory Firm. The exhibition featured work by Academy members, invited artists and artists selected through open submission and encompassed a wide range of artistic media, from painting, printmaking and sculpture through to video works.
Over £7,000 in prize money was awarded to exhibiting artists of merit. Independent adjudicator CHRISTOPHER LE BRUN PRA, selected recipients of the Academy’s gold, silver and bronze medal prizes while all other prizes were awarded by the prize sponsors. Le Brun is a painter, sculptor and printmaker and was elected President of the Royal Academy in December 2011.
With the support of Belfast City Council and the Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland the Academy organised a comprehensive events programme aimed at schools, families, art enthusiasts and the wider general public. These events, which ran throughout the exhibition, included guided exhibition tours, workshops, artist talks and lectures.
