Registered Charity 246199 - Established 1952​



The Free Painters and Sculptors has over 50 artists and associates and we are always interested in applications from quality artists to join this active and inclusive group.

To apply to be considered for our next exhibition please fill out our online application:



Please note that artists are only invited to become a formal member of FPS after exhibiting as a guest at one of our annual exhibitions (Online only submissions can often be misleading so we like to meet the artist and see the work up close before formal membership is agreed)


Annual membership fees do apply​ (Currently £50 pa) and we strive to ensure all members are guaranteed a place in at least one exhibition a year - exhibition places are competitive!

Hanging Fees apply to each exhibition and vary from venue to venue but average around £200 per artist per show - Fees are charged to cover exhibiting costs only - we are a strictly not-for-profit organisation.

You can also subscribe here to receive information for upcoming exhibitions.
