See Rossanne Pellegrino's photography in the upcoming National Open Art Winter Exhibition!

Three of Rossanne Pellegrino's images from Havana, Cuba have been selected to be part of the National Open Art Winter Exhibition. Her work is one of 133 works being exhibited, shortlisted from over 3,000 entries!

See what the National Open Art Competition has to say about this exciting event:

"We have 133 amateur and established artists from all corners of the UK and Ireland happily celebrating after being selected as finalists in this year’s National Open Art Competition. We have never in 19 years exhibited so many works but it proved to be so hard for our judges to keep to the usual one hundred.

The finalists are vying for a range of prizes that will be announced on 21 October, opened by Will Gompertz, and 23 October, opened by Gavin Turk, our Vice President, at the RCA. These include the Fine Art Award for the Best Artist and the Best Young British artist, both of which carry a prize of £5,000, and the Best Emerging Artist, which carries a £1,000 prize. A prize for the best artwork in each medium will also be given. For the first time in the competition’s history, this includes a moving image category and a category for work submitted by artists aged under 15.

As well as the above 133 works, the exhibition will also include 6 Highly Commended and Winning Moving Image entries and 6 Highly Commended and Winning Children's works, another first for NOA.

All entries to this year’s competition (apart from Moving Image) are for sale and proceeds for each piece will be divided between the artist, NOA, and The House of Fairytales, a charity that helps children and young people engage with art.
National Open Art’s Winter Exhibition takes place at the Royal College of Art between 21 October – 1 November and is free to enter.
