People who have saved this event:


Contemporary British Painting is a group of artists representing some of the most exciting emerging and award-winning painting in the UK today. The Contemporary British Painting Summer Exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary Quay Arts’ Charity, Steve Ross Foundation for the Arts.


40 Contemporary British Painters (all works are for sale) http://www.contemporarybritishpainting.com

Established in 2013 by Robert Priseman in conjunction with Simon Carter, CBP seeks to explore and promote current trends in British painting. It is an artist led platform and receives no funding but works through members’ endeavour and in parallel to the established ‘art world’ in order to promote excellence in painting. The group has made substantial donations of paintings to art museums and permanent collections in the UK and abroad and has launched a friends and members scheme to enable art lovers to access news, private views of artist exhibitions and studio visits within the group.

Having established a number of ongoing projects the group continues to look for
creative outlets and opportunities for painters. It is currently working with Westminster Art Library in London and First Site in Colchester on a series of monthly reading groups; launched the Contemporary British Painting Prize, a new national annual prize with the prizewinning exhibitions held at Riverside Gallery, Richmond Museum, London,
Huddersfield Art Gallery and Swindon Museum and Art Gallery beginning September
2016 - January 2017; and an on-going programme of group shows at The Crypt, St.
Marylebone Parish Church, London, as well as a large exhibition travelling to two national museums in China in 2017.

“Painting today is at its most diverse, possibly more so now than at any other time in history, and the range and scope of work on show here is testament to the vibrancy and acknowledged status of British painting on the international stage. It seems wholly appropriate that Quay Arts in partnership with Contemporary British Painting should choose to mark this in their anniversary year.”
