Be in the frame for Summer Exhibition tickets

Get in quick for ArtPress’ comp to see Royal Academy show and new product

 

If you like art, you’ll love art card publisher ArtPress and its competition to win a pair of tickets to the Royal Academy’s renowned annual Summer Exhibition.

But you’ll have to get in quick to place an order from the publisher which includes RA product as the closing date is Friday, 12 July, when owner Linzi Russell-Watson will draw one name at random from all relevant orders as the winner.

And the prize of two tickets, worth at least £44, includes shopping vouchers for the Gallery Shop at the venue in London’s Piccadilly where the latest ArtPress products on sale include five new designs taken from the walls of the Summer Exhibition.

“The colours are big, bold and beautiful,” Linzi told PG Buzz, “and include a bird colour wheel, by a certain Jim Moir also known by his stage name Vic Reeves, whose edition at the RA has already sold out.”

The Royal Academy Of Arts Summer Exhibition 2024 is on for two months, the world’s oldest open submission exhibition where anyone can enter their work to be considered for inclusion, which has happened every year since 1769. This year’s display was coordinated by Ann Christopher RA and runs to 18 August.

Among its eccentricities is the procession along Piccadilly of artists led by a steel band, and the non-members’ Varnishing Day, which is the artists’ last chance to touch up their work before the show opens but is now more of a celebration event.

ArtPress has also launched a brand-new website, working with industry expert Skylight Media, and Linzi joked: “We were having a nervous countdown before it wooshed off into the atmosphere with fingers and everything crossed that we didn’t hear ‘Houston, we have a problem’!”

Thankfully everything went well and the website is now up and running, and Linzi added: “It’s even easier to find favourite card designs and discover all the exciting new ones, with a quick-as-you-like scrolling function, visual ordering system, touch of a button to reveal all the new products, and just an all-round visual treat.”
