ABOUT THE FREE PAINTERS AND SCULPTORS
The annual Member’s Exhibition by the Free Painters and Sculptors (FPS) will be held for the second year at the stunning Menier Gallery in London Bridge. This exhibition will be an open theme and feature works by the talented FPS Members and a selection of special guests.
FPS is an artist lead not-for-profit organisation that supports and promotes artists to develop their work on their own terms. The group builds long-term relationships with artists and promotes the dialogue and exchange of ideas within the visual arts through annual exhibitions and events.
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.
FPS played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art in the 1950’s and 60’s and was the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements.
