The Royal Institute of Oil Painters

The Royal Institute of Oil Painters was founded in 1882 and is the only major British art Society that promotes and exhibits work of the highest standard exclusively in the Oils. The ROI provides a centre of excellence and encouragement to all who love this robust medium and is based at the Mall Galleries, London SW1.

THE ROI Annual Open Exhibition is held in December when non-members are afforded the opportunity to exhibit alongside established ROI members.
