JM Finn & Co bring the RA Schools Exhibition to East Anglia

The RA Schools Exhibition in East Anglia is a unique display of works of art by the students of the Royal Academy Schools...


The RA Schools is an independent contemporary art school, established at the same time as the Royal Academy in 1768.  It has a unique place in the post-graduate art school landscape as the only art school to offer a three year post-graduate program, tailor-made to the needs of each individual student. Competition to study at the RA Schools is exceptionally high, with over 600 candidates applying for approximately 20 places each year. This exhibition represents a new venture for the RA Schools, bringing the works produced by its students outside London into East Anglia for the first time. 

Sponsored by JM Finn & Co, which has offices in both Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich, and hosted in the magnificent setting of Culford School, Bury St Edmunds, the exhibition invites RA postgraduate students to show works of their choice, developed during their study. Works shown will include a wide range of contemporary art media, including painting, print and sculpture. 

All works exhibited will be available for purchase providing visitors with a rare opportunity to view and buy, at artists’ prices, exceptional pieces by emerging artists who could be the next Turner, Constable or, indeed, a Turner prize winner. In addition to the pleasure of owning a work of art, buyers will in turn be supporting young artists in the development and production of new works of art at the RA Schools. 

The following artists will exhibit: Rebecca Ackroyd, Sofie Alsbo, Hannah Bays, Julie Born Schwartz, Alex Clarke, Adam Collier, Marisa J. Futernick, Ziggy Grudzinskas, Marie von Heyl, Declan Jenkins, Maria de Lima, Aimee Parrott, Max Prus, Paul Schneider, Joel Wyllie and graduates Nancy Milner, Michael O’Reilly, John Robertson. 

The RA Schools Exhibition in East Anglia r eveals the diversity of the students’ practices and offers the visitor an exclusive and early opportunity to view and purchase an array of different works of art, as well as a rare opportunity to meet the artists. 

The exhibition will take place between 3 October 2013 and 5 October 2013.
