West Ealing artists' success in major national portrait exhibition

Work by a local artist, Stella Tooth, has been selected from over 1,000 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading portrait artists. The Royal Society of Portrait Painters hold an annual open submission exhibition in central London each year.

Graced by portraits of royalty, celebrities, academics, mothers, daughters, fathers and sons, the exhibition is a feature of the social calendar.

This year about half of the work will be by eminent Members of the Society and half by emerging artists selected through the open submission. Stella’s painting is of BBC R4 From our own correspondent presenter Kate Adie.

With some 200 portraits on show this is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of recent portraits in the country with a special section on self-portraiture.

This year’s exhibition will be on display at Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between 16 April to 1 May 2015

The Royal Society of Portrait Painters have many prizes and awards available to exhibitors, including the £10,000 Ondaatje Prize for Portraiture and the £3,000 de Laszlo Foundation Award.
