Foyle's show March 2008: An Overview

Free Painters & Sculptors*

The 'Free Painters and Sculptors' is a society of artists with a long history of eclecticism. Thanks to the generosity of Nina Hosali the group became an educational arts charity in 1965 and actively promotes the free expression of all its members. This exhibition at Foyles Gallery on 'Movement', between the 3rd and 14th March inclusive, will incorporate a diverse interpretation of the theme. These range from Vivien Lodge's prints with their Surrealist appeal, to those artists who convey more traditional interpretations such as the dancing figures of Andres Insh or Silvana Desira.

The theme of football, expressed through Owen Legg's inventive wooden reliefs or more traditionally in oil by Keith Stanfield, contrasts with those in the group who enjoy the playfulness of childhood games or the movement inherent in Nature itself.

Styles may range from abstract to figurative and the discerning art lover will find artists of considerable talent with work at very affordable prices. This exhibition promises to be one that will inspire the viewer with its originality and creative flair.
