The National Gallery
Get 25% off tickets to Making Colour, running at The National Gallery from 18th June to 31st July 2014. The first exhibition of its kind in Britain, discover the wide range of materials used to create colour in paintings, textiles, ceramics and glass. Journey through a series of colour-themed rooms and learn about the surprising materials used to make pigments – from crushed insects to sparkling gemstones. Combining art and science to tell the rich stories behind each colour, you can find out more about this interactive exhibition here.
Royal Academy of Arts
Save £2 on tickets to the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. The world’s largest open entry exhibition is open from 9th June to 17th August 2014, so get down to the RA and explore over 1,000 works on the gallery walls and floors. Co-ordinated by Hughie O’Donaghue, this year once again sees a plethora of art made by both emerging and established artists, and includes work by Peter Jones, Sarah Ball and Nuala O’Donovan.

Scottish National Portrait Gallery
Bag 25% off tickets to John Ruskin: Artist and Observer at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Ruskin is known first and foremost as a great British art critic and the champion of JMW Turner, and so his own artwork is often overlooked. As an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, this exhibition celebrates his finest work ranging from Gothic architecture to wild landscapes, and runs from 4th July to 28th September 2014. Read more about the exhibition here.
The Holburne Museum
Claim your offer on 2 for 1 tickets to Julian Opie: Collected Works at The Holburne Museum in Bath. Continuing a series of exhibitions exploring artists and their collections, this is Opie’s first solo show in a UK museum for over ten years. Intricately navigating the line between his historic collection and own contemporary vision for portraiture, make sure you catch it between 1st June and 31st July. Find out more here.
