The summer Gallery

July 11, 2010

Nowadays the Royal Academy recieves close to 10,000 annual submissions from professionals and members of the public hoping to make the cut for the presitgious Summer Exhibition. Unfortunately, only about 10% of these ever make the final cut. Two years ago one Rocco Sciaraffa, an amateur photographer, having had his own work rejected, was inspired to create an opportunity for all these works to be displayed.

In an interview with the Times, Sciaraffa said; “I saw that there were so many great pieces of work here, which the public might never get to see…I felt there had to be an outlet for all this rejected art.”

Subsequently, the Summer Gallery was born. Rejected art works are displayed in an online gallery enabling all artist to display their work to a wide audience. There is no fee for uploading up to 10 pieces, only a 10% commission charge if a work is sold on the site.
