This upcoming exhibition looks interesting. I am planning a visit or two.

TURPS BANANA   12 JULY – 17 AUGUST 2012

Vigo Gallery 22 OLD BOND STREET   LONDON W1S 4PY

An exhibition to raise funds for the TURPS ART SCHOOL opening in September.

In September 2012, Turps Banana, the painting magazine written exclusively by painters, will open the doors of its new art school based in Bermondsey. The one-year course aims to provide an intense mentoring structure for committed painters and, as well as a back to basics approach, Turps will have the support and involvement of some of the most illustrious painters who have worked with the magazine during the publication of 11 issues.

Although all of the artists have donated works to help to support the magazine and the development of the art school, this exhibition has been carefully considered to reflect that which is current, significant and critical in contemporary painting, including abstract works by Thomas Nozkowski, Mali Morris and Phil Allen, and painters who have championed a figurative approach such as Chantal Joffe, Neal Tait and Dinos Chapman. The show will change with new works being added during the course of the exhibition.
