M1 FINE ART HOSTS ‘THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF OIL PAINTERS’: THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF OIL PAINTERS

2 September - 2 October 2016

Throughout the first half of 2016, members of the UK’s most revered organisation pertaining to the production of oil paintings have been out in force on the streets of Greenwich, doing what they do best. With the sole goal in mind of capturing the beauty of this, one of London’s most famed and historic locations, a collection of works has been produced from life which will be displayed at M1 Fine Art throughout the entire month of September in an exhibition entitled ‘The ROI Paints Greenwich’.

 

Led by its president, Ian Cryer and Vice President Tim Benson, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters was founded in 1882 and was granted royal status by King Edward VII in 1909. Confined to a very limited number of elected members, who each demonstrate the required level of excellence in the field of oil painting, The ROI encompasses all styles and techniques – a tradition that dates back to its inauguration.

The Royal Institute of Oil Painters demands the same high standard of excellence set by legendary artists of the past who have shown their work in ROI exhibitions, such as Rodin. Its records, beginning in 1882, are held in the Victoria & Albert Museum.

‘The ROI Paints Greenwich’ will feature works from the following artists:

  • Adebanji Alade
  • Natalia Avdeeva
  • Tim Benson (VPROI)
  • Trevor Chamberlin
  • Ian Cryer (PROI)
  • Roger Dellar
  • Roger Ferrin
  • Alice Hall
  • Philip James
  • Haidee-Jo Summers
  • Robin Mackervoy
  • Ronald Morgan
  • Barry Peckham
  • David Pilgrim
  • Graham Webber

The exhibition runs from September 2nd to October 2nd 2016 at M1 Fine Art
