Smith & Williamson thanks loyal clients with private art evening at RWA

December 3, 2015

Accountancy, investment management and tax group Smith & Williamson welcomed more than 400 business owners, directors, professional advisors, private individuals and trustees to its annual client event at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA).

Guests networked with members of Smith & Williamson’s 190-strong Bristol team at the drinks reception and enjoyed a private viewing of 500-plus works of art which made up the RWA’s 163rd annual open art exhibition.

Smith & Williamson Bristol managing partner Mike Lea said: “This event gives us an opportunity to thank our loyal clients, bringing everyone together for an interesting evening of art and conversation. We had a great turnout again this year and we hope our clients enjoyed it as much as we did.”

The open art exhibition, sponsored by Smith & Williamson, ended last week. It was the RWA’s biggest show of the year, featuring a diverse collection of work by more than 350 professional and amateur artists, including paintings, printed works, photography, architectural designs and sculptures, all of which were for sale.
