Private View, Tuesday 1st May 6-8pm.
Repre art collective is a group of artists who have come together to exhibit, celebrate and promote contemporary representational art. They share a common vision to capture and depict reality and express it through diverse and eloquent forms of painting. This is their first collaborative exhibition together and the installation promises to be a vibrant display of contemporary portrait and landscape painting.
The choice to hold their first exhibition together in St Martin-in-the-Fields and at the heart of the establishment in Trafalgar Square conveys their desire to raise the profile of contemporary figurative art and what it can truly articulate. It is fitting that a venue which has shown work by established artists such as Chris Gollon and Mike Chapman can also accommodate the work of emerging talent.
A prize draw will take place on the night of the private view as Julie Bennett, Nathaniel Fowles and Patrick Simkins will be donating limited edition prints of their work to raise funds for St. Martin-in-the-Fields BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal.
