Past Exhibitions & Events
Updated: 2 Jun 2021
For much of 2020 all physical exhibitions and events were postponed or cancelled. However, we were able to hold some online exhibitions:
RGA ONLINE EXHIBITION
"Celebrating Our Town – Discover Reading"
In November 2020 we re-discovered RGA members' Reading, in this expanded and revisited exhibition.
See your favourite artists' work and explore the rooms to re-discover and remember, with 90 new works added and new stories to tell, alongside works from our original exhibition launched September 2020.

RGA ONLINE EXHIBITION
This was our first instalment of "Celebrating Our Town – Discover Reading", launched in September 2020, in what was the RGA's 90th Anniversary Year.
"It's so beautifully presented, informative and so elegantly hung."
"It's a joy to wander round at leisure from my own armchair! I can re-enter a room, stand and gaze with nobody wanting to share my view."
"Most enjoyable to wander around the "rooms" and see the inspiring pieces from RGA artists."
"A wonderful window into the Guild."
"A brilliant show – some lovely work really well presented."
SPRING EXHIBITION 2020
"HERE COMES THE SUN: HARRISON IN HENLEY"
The Old Fire Station Gallery
52 Market Place
Henley-on-Thames, RG9 2AG
Fri 6th – Mon 16th March 2020
'Here Comes the Sun – Harrison in Henley' sparked off plenty of creative activity among RGA Members. The Exhibitions team was very excited by what was shown – both two and three dimensional artwork. Whether focusing on the life and interests of George Harrison – his music, his spirituality, charity work (the Concert for Bangladesh in 1971) or his love of landscape gardening – or the many and varied aspects of Henley town itself, there is plenty of inspiration. The Henley Royal Regatta, the Annual Festivals, the River Thames, and the local landscape have all inspired artists over the years. We enjoyed the artworks that members of the RGA created, in celebration of George Harrison – the man, his music and his life – especially whilst he lived in Henley.
