Summer is here when parents and I are lucky enough to get our invite to drinks at the RA for the Summer Exhibition.

Royal Academy

For those of you who don’t know, the Summer Exhibition has been running for nearly 250 years and is the largest open entry exhibition. This basically means that anyone can enter their artwork and the chosen ones are selected by a panel of leading artists.

There’s no better way then having topped up champagne as you explore the gallery rooms.

My favourite was the back and white room, simple but some very cool pieces in there.

Lawrence seemed to have a fascination with this lobster painting.

Now of this collection which would you say was £66,000?

Guess who by!?

I would recommend you take a trip down there, it’s a great mixture of art – something for everyone!
