La Galleria Pall Mall and the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, together, occasionally arrange group exhibitions via open calls and artist’s submissions. 


Similarly the two galleries annually organise the Royal Arts Prize, showcasing 25 artists who through a submission process are included in a shortlisted exhibition. A judging panel awards the winner a two week solo-exhibition, also two runner-up artists and a visitors choice artist are awarded a joint exhibition.


The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery is a gallery for hire, we host major solo shows throughout the year.

We run a very limited number of Group Shows during the year but we accept and review applications regularly, accepting submissions of work in all mediums. Artists are selected by the gallery for exhibitions on the basis of quality. As the organisers of a group exhibition,  all hanging and promotional material for the show as well as an opening reception is arranged and handled by us. 


Because of our limited resources, artists are generally expected to pay a participation fee.

We're currently taking submissions for Royal Arts Prize 2018, click here to see the open call.


The aim of the Royal Arts Prize Exhibition and Award is to search out for and showcase artworks by artists that have embraced their individual exegesis in art, artworks that are a product of an inner balance in a world full of diversity and often chaos.


The prize will be awarded to artists that present works that are the product of this emotional connection between dream and reality; we welcome contemporary art that shows the force driving individuals to express and affirm their personality and ego, through today’s modern art landscape.


The Royal Arts Prize Exhibition will showcase over a hundred artworks from 25 selected artists.
