ROSL ARTS are very proud to be taking part in Mayfair Art Weekend 2017, as one of over 60 galleries, auction houses, leading fashion brands and restaurants in Mayfair and St. James’s to open their doors to the public. This is the first year that the event is working in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, to celebrate the diverse offering of Mayfair as a vibrant hub of creativity and craftsmanship, where the worlds of art, fashion and luxury reside.
Opening as the weekend launches, ROSL ARTS have invited the Cynthia Corbett Gallery to bring their fantastic selection of young, international artists to Overseas House, celebrating the fourth edition of the Young Masters Art Prize.
