Stewarts Law RCA Secret Exhibition

Stewarts Law is delighted to be the sponsor of the Stewarts Law RCA Secret held each year by the Royal College of Art to raise funds for its RCA Fund to support young artists with bursaries and scholarships.

Yinka ShonibareEach year original post card sized artworks donated by internationally acclaimed artists as well as artworks from up and coming graduates from the Royal College of Art are exhibited and sold.

The Stewarts Law RCA Secret which started in 1994 has included contributions from some of the leading names in contemporary art including Grayson Perry, Yinka Shonibare, David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Julian Opie, Tracey Emin and Yoko Ono, as well as many designers including Paul Smith, Stella McCartney, Manolo Blahnik and Giorgio Armani and musicians like David Bowie, Sir Paul McCartney and Jarvis Cocker.

The Secret

Jarvis CockerThe artists remain a secret until after the cards are purchased and the signature is revealed on the reverse. This gives collectors a unique opportunity to own an original by a high profile artist for a fraction of what it may otherwise cost.
