The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) is pleased to announce the forthcoming annual archive exhibition, ‘Abstraction at the RBSA’.

The exhibition features artworks from the Society’s Collection and has been curated by two of the RBSA’s Undergraduate Archive Team Volunteers from the University of Birmingham: Tate Gronow and Emily Robins.

The exhibition will be on show at the RBSA Gallery in St Paul’s Square, from Monday 5 to Saturday 31 October 2015.

Sixteen carefully selected artworks from the RBSA Collection will be on show, which explore the presence of abstraction throughout the RBSA’s history.

The artists on display include: prominent international artist, William Gear; founder of the Ikon Gallery, Robert Groves and the first female president of the RBSA, Joan Woollard.

Collection-based exhibitions are held annually at the RBSA Gallery and are often curated by volunteers, providing invaluable curatorial experience for those wishing to develop a career in the sector.

The events programme includes a Student Night on 7 October, a tour by Brendan Flynn on Saturday 17 October and an art workshop for families from 2 to 4pm on Sunday 25 October.

Groups of 5 to 15 people are also welcome to book a free guided tour by the curators on Saturday 10 and 24 October.

The RBSA is an artist-led charity which supports artists and promotes engagement with the visual arts.

The Society owns and runs the RBSA Gallery where it provides a changing programme of exhibitions, practical art workshops, art demonstrations and events. Admission to the Gallery and all exhibitions is free.
