I haven’t been to one since 2019 – so am really looking forward to going this year. This is after the ROI experienced the worst luck possible of having both its 2020 and 2021 exhibitions clobbered by you know what – plus I was avoiding exhibitions pre-surgery last year.
That said, I’m still not attending Private Views (I’m still averse to large crowds indoors), so I’m not going to be visiting until Friday at the earliest so thought I’d take the opportunity today to highlight below
- the Online Exhibition – which you can view now
- the many Events – including painting with the ROI members – being held during the Exhibition

It was very sad to see from the catalogue that the ROI has lost five members in the last year – in alphabetical order
