Just to remind you of our first show of 2018 at the King & Queen, Foley Street, W1. We are delighted to feature two poets with Cornish roots who are among the strongest performers around. Poet, artist and storyteller Bob Devereux is travelling up from St Ives while London-based, Cornish raised Sue Johns will weigh in with some great verse of her own.
As ever floor readers are welcome and may like to read something with a Cornish theme (optional) - sign up by 7pm for an unmissable evening in a welcoming local.
Hope to see you there,
at the KING &QUEEN
Wednesday 28th February, 7.30pm
Based near St Ives, Cornwall, Bob is an outstanding poet, storyteller, librettist and artist. Savour an extended set during this rare chance to see him in London. His work embraces humour, pathos, landscape and deep human emotion, all delivered in richly resonant west country tones.
Sue continues the evening's Cornish theme. She grew up near Penzance and has since moved to London. Her lyrical work embraces Cornish history; politics both personal and political; feminism and the warp and woof of living in a challenging urban environment. She can also be very funny.

We're delighted to announce that the 2018 Shape Open - the UK’s premier
disability-led group exhibition - will take place at The Art Pavilion, Mile
End, London from 22 March to 5 April.
This year's theme is "Collective Influence", featuring artwork
created by both disabled and non-disabled artists in response to provocations
such as: what influences you? How does influence go further than inspiration?
What power does influence have to provoke change, and what capacity does it
have to affect society?
All are welcome to join us at the Private View on 22
March from 6.30 to 8.30pm.
The Shape newsletter is circulated monthly. If you would like to receive interim
bulletins with opportunities for young people or for artists, please
email firstname.lastname@example.org, giving your name and indicating which
bulletin you wish to receive.
Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
