Each year the Atkinson Gallery hosts its open entry Summer Show. Artists are invited to submit up to 3 works that may be selected to be exhibited in the gallery for 6 weeks from 25 June 2018. Entries closed at 5pm on Monday 23 April. By moving the exhibition forward last year we were able to welcome even more visitors into the gallery and enable pupils to fully benefit from the work.
Each February the Atkinson Gallery welcomes students from MA and other Postgraduate programmes across the UK to exhibit in the Atkinson Gallery. Students are nominated by their lecturers to put forward up to 4 pieces of artwork created during their Postgraduate course. Last year we welcomed entries from 25 universities.

The Atkinson Gallery is proud to be welcoming the President of the Royal West of England Academy, Stewart Geddes, for a lively and colourful solo exhibition in September. Geddes took up the Presidency on 1 September 2016 and within his role he hopes to develop artistic and wider links with BME communities and to progress the archive collection of works that the RWA has been holding since the 19th century.
