The Bankside Gallery is an exhibition venue focusing on watercolors and prints. Its “exhibitions celebrate the very best in contemporary water-based media and original print, championing the work of both new and established artists.”
Opened in 1980 by Queen Elizabeth II, Bankside is the gallery of the Royal Watercolour Society and of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. Both societies present their annual exhibitions at the Bankside Gallery.
In addition, the gallery presents a changing series of exhibitions each year. These can be the work of an individual artist or group exhibitions focusing on works on paper.
The Bankside Gallery also supports the educational programs of its constituent societies.
In addition to its exhibition gallery, Bankside has a book shop.
The Bankside Gallery is next to the Tate Modern on the south bank of the River Thames.
