Exhibition in Art Gallery



The Sinclair Gallery will be sponsoring the 2022 Contemporary British Portrait Painters Exhibition this June, alongside fellow sponsors Cass Art and The Net Gallery.


The exhibition will be held at The Department Store in Brixton between 11th and 18th June 2022. 

"CBPP is a place to showcase some of the best British practitioners of this wonderful field of painting and a place to learn and support one another in what we do. After all, whatever stage we are at, we are all learning. We are mostly professional painters and full membership of the group is by invitation. You don’t have to have exhibited in a prominent show, or have won a prize for portraiture and members are invited purely on the quality of their work and their commitment to portraiture. While striving to avoid exclusivity, we also recognise the value in an aspirational element to being asked to join and currently there is no maximum number of members, so we are aiming to be as democratic as we can be."

Our very own artists Martyn Burdon and Steve Caldwell are among the many amazing members of the CBPP. The exhibition this year is sure to be breathtaking, not only because of the talent of the displaying artists, but also due to the intriguing decision made by the curators to avoid giving submission guidelines, and instead opting to encourage artists to be as bold as they like. There will be a range of mediums, styles, and messages on display at this exhibition, and we would love to have you visit.

The exhibition is free to enter, no booking required, and is open 10-5 every day.
