Autumn Exhibitions

We hold an annual Autumn exhibition in Royston Town Hall, Melbourn Street, Royston, SG8 7BS (map) each year on the last weekend in September. In 2022, we will also be running an online version of the Autumn exhibition from 1st October to 1st December. There is no hanging fee for Members but the Society will deduct a commission on all sold work. This exhibition is a major event in the Royston Arts Festival. We usually get 800 – 1000 visitors and a similar number visit our online exhibitions. We display well over 400 framed and unframed paintings plus several hundred greetings cards.

Members Exhibition

The Members Exhibition is now an online event. It runs from mid April to mid June. We typically have about 30 – 35 exhibiting artists and we display 150 – 200 paintings. All sales enquiries are forwarded to the artist. It is then up to the artist to complete the sale. The artist can submit a new painting to replace any that are sold. There is no hanging fee but we charge a modest commission on sales.

Library Exhibition

We have an on-going exhibition of RAS Members’ paintings in Royston Library, Market Hill, Royston, SG8 9JN (map). This is refreshed on the first Monday of each month between 3.15 and 4.00pm (On the first Tuesday, if the Monday is a Bank Holiday).

Members simply take their paintings along and collect those that have not been sold. There is no hanging fee and the library takes a commission of 20% on all sales.

We have room to exhibit a maximum of 40 – 45 paintings.
