The Free Painters and Sculptors are back again at the Muse Gallery for their annual Summer Exhibition.
FPS at the Muse 2019 will feature ethereal landscapes from Alex McIntyre and Leila Godden and portraiture from Ben Wilson. Illustrative and abstract paintings will come from Michael Hempstead, George Antoni, Gosia Lapsa-Malawska and guest artist Bina Shah. Louisa Crispin will be showcasing some delicate and intricate drawings and there will be a variety of striking and thought provoking printmaking and photography from Mark Welland, Tim Major and Gabriel and John Parfitt.
Sculpture as always plays a prominent role and this year will feature abstract works from Alex Harley, Henryk Terpilowski, Sarah Choi, Simon Probyn and Richard Farrington whilst also featuring a particularly topical piece by Kevin Vincenzo…
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.
