Originating in the nineteenth century, a group of local artists formed the Bristol Society of Artists. By the middle of the nineteenth century the Bristol Academy had been formed and brought the Bristol Society of Artists under its wing. Since its inception the RWA has been working to encourage different ways to participate and be inspired by art.

The Annual Open had been planned to open in November but due to the pandemic it was delayed until 5 December. The RWA will offer limited, bookable slots online to ensure the public’s safety: please visit the their website to learn more or book your visit:
