The theme of this show is to celebrate painting at a time when painting is just a strand among the diverse array of contemporary art in other media and formats on show in museums and galleries.

The nine artists featured are either UK or USA based and their age range is between 30s and 60s.  Although they are not part of a school or group their very individualistic approach to painting is proving a source of inspiration to a younger generation of artists in leading art schools around the world.
