Redland Art Awards (RAA) was due to celebrate its 32nd year in 2020 with an exhibition of shortlisted entries scheduled to open in late October at Redland Art Gallery (RAG), Cleveland. Due to the temporary closure of RAG and the uncertainty around COVID-19 the difficult decision was made to cancel this year’s awards. With approval to reopen RAG, Cleveland on 15 June 2020 an opportunity presented itself to showcase the 14 paintings acquired for the RAG Collection from RAA between 2006 and 2018. Visitors are invited to vote for their favourite RAA acquisition.
Visit the RAA website for more information on past RAA exhibitions.
