ART EXHIBITION LAUNCH AT ULSTER MUSEUM
Founded in 1879, the Royal Ulster Academy is the largest and longest established body of practicing visual artists in Northern Ireland. One of the founding principles of the Academy was to hold an annual exhibition of work by both members and non–members of merit. Now in its 136th year, this event remains one of the highlights of the Northern Ireland arts calendar.
This year’s Annual Exhibition will be held at the Ulster Museum, Belfast from 6th October 2017 to 7th January 2018 and will once again be sponsored generously by KPMG, the leading Accounting and Professional Advisory Firm. The exhibition will showcase original works across the disciplines of the visual arts by emerging and established artists.
Over £7,000 in prize money will be awarded to exhibiting artists of merit.
