This is the inaugural Summer Exhibition of the Contemporary British Painting group. Founded in 2013 by Robert Priseman in conjunction with Simon Carter, the group was formed to seek ways to explore and promote current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications, art prizes, as well as the donation of paintings to art museums both in the UK and around the world.
Contemporary British Painting represents some of the most exciting, emerging and award-winning artists, painting in the UK today. The exhibition in the West Gallery will feature the work of 40 artists from the group to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of Quay Arts this year.
