Art events update

Tonight the Private View for the 82nd Annual Exhibition of The National Society of Painters, Sculptors & Printmakers was held. The exhibition is at the Menier Gallery until Saturday 11 July. The National Society is a charity with 80 artists showing a wide variety of art, from modern to classical styles in three disciplines. The aim of the society is give emerging artists a platform to exhibit in a major London gallery. The exhibition includes work by commission4mission artists, Elizabeth Duncan-Meyer and Peter Webb.

Yesterday, at St Martin-in-the-Fields, a reception was held to celebrate the loan of the painting Parameter by Mark Francis as part of the St Martin-in-the-Fields Art Programme curated by Modus Operandi and overseen by the St Martin-in-the-Fields Arts Advisory Panel.

Mark Francis says of this work: “Parameter is one of a series of paintings created between 2011 and 2014. The main concern of this series revolves around the use of the grid in relation to different types of networks. Earlier paintings focused on more organic and fluid forms with more chaotic connections. The grid has been an important form throughout my painting practice as it presents a structure within which more ‘random’ incidents can occur. Amongst other influences, the internet, cartography, circuit boards and transport systems provide a stimulus to make the paintings.”
