…the tradition continues!
Welcome to the 98th annual exhibition of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society. It is no coincidence that nearly 10 decades on, the Society’s aesthetic remains firmly grounded in the disciplines of traditional, depictive painting that inspired its founding members.
Through the years since the establishment of the group, there have been many distinguished artists as members of the Society. These artists have contributed to and influenced the rich history of Australian Painting.
The current TMPS members endeavour to uphold these exemplary standards in painting, maintaining a scholarly approach to the art of picture-making and the related activities of teaching and judging.
Jenny Pihan Fine Art is proud to present to you the 2016 annual exhibition of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society for your enjoyment. We thank you for your dedicated interest and support.
