CALL FOR ENTRIES WHEN: 1st — 13th December 2014 WHERE: Menier Gallery, 51 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1RU WHO: Open to all fine art disciplines THEME: Open to all subjects and concepts PRIVATE VIEW: Tuesday 2nd December — 6-9pm SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday 14th November HOW TO SUBMIT Please visit the FPS website for the exhibition application pack www.freepaintersandsculptors.co.uk ABOUT THE 2014 FPS OPEN The FPS Open is an annual event that brings FPS members and guest artists together to create an exciting and inclusive exhibition of the UK's best new and established artists. The event is open to fine artists at any stage of their career and there is no restriction of concept, style or material. This year will again feature the coveted Roy Rasmussen Award for best in show, although this year it will be particularly poignant as Roy, an original founding member who was integral to the success and longevity of FPS, sadly passed away in May, aged 94. To honour the occasion we will feature a retrospective display of his works as part of the exhibition that will illustrate the truly unique and pioneering talents of the internationally renowned sculptor. ABOUT THE FREE PAINTERS AND SCULPTORS FPS is an artist lead organisation based at the Menier Gallery 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. This ethos continues today and we welcome applications from talented artists at all stages of their career.
