Selected from over 2,000 submissions, the A-level Summer Exhibition Online is a showcase of the UK’s young artistic talent.

This year, over 1,400 aspiring artists attending sixth form colleges or schools submitted their work to the A-level Summer Exhibition Online 2018 to be judged by our expert panel: Royal Academician Mali Morris, curator Desirée de Chair, and RA Schools student Hamish Pearch.

Having work chosen to appear in the A-level Summer Exhibition Online is a great achievement for young artists; many will go on to develop their talents at art school and in their careers. Students from all over the UK enter their works and the exhibition showcases a rich variety of styles and media: from drawing and video to sculpture and prints, painting and photography.

Held to coincide with the world’s largest open-entry exhibition, the Summer Exhibition, this online equivalent for artists aged 16–18 signals an exciting future for art in this country. Be among the first to discover these artists now.

Mali Morris RA, judge for the A-Level Summer Exhibition Online 2018, said:

“Our thanks to every student who entered – all contributed to the excitement of this project. We were amazed by the strength of the shortlisted works, by their energy, inventiveness and sense of exploration. Every kind of feeling was here, from tenderness to rage, solemnity to hilarity, in a wide range of materials and processes. We discovered that some works related visually, others by theme; the exhibition and gallery titles [All Eyes On Me, and At Ease; Smile, We’re Watching; Squids] are borrowed from the artists – they seemed to suit, and we liked the ring of them. Congratulations to all the students and their teachers, and cheers to the schools that believe that art is still a vital subject.”
