Batley artist selected for Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019

31st May 2019

Batley-based artist Tony Noble, who works from his studio in Redbrick, Batley Carr, has been selected for this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. His painting, "Car park incident", will be on show from 10th June - 12th August at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly. 

This will be the third time he has been selected for the prestigious annual exhibition. Tony Said, "I'm absolutely thrilled and delighted to have been selected again and am really looking forward to seeing where my painting has been hung when I attend Varnishing Day next week. I am very grateful to this year's exhibition co-ordinator Jock McFadyen RA and the selection committee for choosing to put my work in the show. It's a great place to showcase work and provides a great selling opportunity." The theme of this year's selection, Jock says, is "art which is a response to the world".


Run without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open submission art show and brings together art in all mediums – prints and paintings, film, photography, sculpture, architectural works and more – by leading artists, Royal Academicians and household names as well as new and emerging talent. Around 1,200 works will be on display, most of them for the first time.

As always, most of the artworks will be for sale with proceeds helping to fund the Academy’s non-profit-making activities, including educating the next generation of artists in the RA Schools.
