The Perth Royal Art Show was established by RASWA in 1974 and it has grown in artistic calibre every year. Many emerging artists have used the competition to launch their careers and go on to make significant contributions to the arts community in WA and nationally. Exhibited works are a popular attraction at the IGA Perth Royal Show and they are available for sale.
