The 255th Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition is back and as brilliant as ever! We were so proud to see that TAG Fine Arts artists were selected to exhibit their work in this joyful celebration of contemporary art. A huge congratulations to all of the artists selected, including Adam Dant, Frank Kiely and Katsutoshi Yuasa.

This year's theme is Only Connect, coordinated by David Remfry, RA. Inspired by a quote from the novel Howards End by E.M. Forester, 'Only Connect can be simple or as complex as you like - as simple as putting a plug in a socket, as meeting a friend for a coffee or the fabric of the entire cosmos'.

The 255th Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition features over 1400 artworks in the Main Galleries at The Royal Academy, Piccadilly, W1J 0BD | Tuesday - Sunday 10 am - 6 pm - 15 June 2022 - 20 August 2023. You can register for tickets here. Friends and Members of the RA go for FREE but booking is essential.



At the RA Summer Exhibition, Frank Kiely proudly displayed his artwork titled 'Londonium Plaza'. This captivating piece consists of framed screenprints, available in an edition of 150.  Kiley's work showcases iconic screenprints depicting London street scenes, highlighting specific areas of vibrant colour, often featuring London iconography like the cabs, red bus or phone box.




Adam Dant exhibited a commission piece by The Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects to celebrate the work and life of Sir Christopher Wren. Dant's historical motifs run through all his works with present-day observations to create wryly humorous views of contemporary culture. The merging of master draftsmanship and wonderfully imaginative vision has led him being hailed as a 'modern day Hogarth'.



Katsutoshi Yuasa exhibited two of his woodcut prints at the Summer Exhibition. His work combines two processes - the camera's 'snapshot' and the woodcut's lengthy reinterpretation of the same image. He interpreted the theme of 'Only Connect' with his work in hopes to crystallise the atmospheric and emotional character of his subjects.
