The year's annual ROI exhibition at London's Mall Galleries opens to the public on Weds December 7 and runs until Sunday 18th December. The Mall Galleries are easy to get to and are just a short walk from Trafalgar Square. ROI President Peter Wileman commented: "This year we have something for everyone from landscapes to portraits. It's a fantastic collection of work by our members and those non-members who got through our rigorous selection process. This exhibition makes the ideal, colourful antidote to all the doom and gloom about at the moment and I hope more people than ever will find time to come along and see the hundreds of painting on display."
Here is a small selection of the pictures on display this year. Double click on the images to enlarge them.
