ROI Annual Exhibition Selection Day

This year there were nearly 750 paintings submitted for the annual exhibtion at the Mall Galleries  and as usual the selction committee made up moslty of the ruling Council of the ROI recently met to make their selection of just 260 paitings for the exhibition which runs from December 8-19. It's a tough job, as you can imagine,  with only paintings getting the necessary number of votes getting through.  The selection is all done in a single day which makes for quite an intensice session. Here are some pictures of this years selection.

This years entries are of a very high standard and it promises to be a bumper show. Why not come along and see for yourself. Peter Wileman President of the ROI commented:
"It's such a tough task. Sometimes pictures fail by just one vote to get through. I really hope that those who were not sucessful this year will try again."
