THEN AND NOW’ is an exhibition celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Free Painters and Sculptors (FPS) curated by Gabriel Parfitt and Charlotte Williams.
’Then and Now’ pays tribute to the diversity of the eclectic yet coherent group of artists from one of the capital’s longest established artist organisations.
The exhibition holds true to the founding principles of FPS - artists who are free from the constraints of a particular art classification, style or movement.
’Then and Now’ will feature FPS artists from the past six decades, including founding member and renowned sculptor Roy Rasmussen. Newer members also include contemporary landscape painter Rob Perry RBSA and urban artist PIKY. This show will be an opportunity to purchase affordable work from established artists, as well as exciting up-and-coming members. It will also give a fascinating insight into the history of FPS since 1952.
The Private View (22th November) will be an opportunity to meet FPS members from the last 60 years and to enjoy music from award winning singer-songwriter and Queen of the Underground, Hadar Manor (www.hadar.co.uk).
