ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Off the back of last yearâ€™s very successful FPS Open Exhibition, we are once again back at the Menier Gallery based at the historic Menier Chocolate Factory, situated in the heart of one of Londonâ€™s top creative hotspots - minutes from London Bridge, Borough Market and Tate Modern.
The FPS Members Exhibition 2016 is the start of an exciting new series of winter exhibitions designed to celebrate and showcase our very talented international group of contemporary artists that are the Free Painters and Sculptors. This competitive show will feature a diverse collection of contemporary and competitively priced artworks, carefully selected to celebrate our long established collective.
ABOUT THE FREE PAINTERS AND SCULPTORS
FPS is an established artist lead organisation that promotes and exhibits a talented membership of Painters, Sculptors, Printmakers and Photographers at renowned central London galleries. With 64 years of experience, FPS helps artists build long-term networks that develop artistic sustainability, exposure and sales, whilst also encouraging artists to create work on their own termsâ€¦.and therefore be â€˜freeâ€™
Established in 1952, FPS was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts). Founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot who all feature in the permanent Tate Collection.
FPS originally came to prominence by playing a significant part in the establishment of abstract art in the 1950's and 60's and were the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements. This ethos continues today and we welcome applications from talented artists at all stages of their career.
