Twenty Melbourne Painters Society Annual Exhibition

Location: VAS Gallery


9 Aug 2024 – 20 Aug 2024
The TMPS is thrilled to announce our return to the Victorian Artists Society Galleries for our 106th annual exhibition.

2024 IS GOING TO BE A VERY EXCITING YEAR FOR THE Twenty Melbourne Painters Society

 

In 1918 our rebellious founding members stormed out of the VAS in protest at Max Meldrum being unseated as VAS president.

The TMPS has flourished ever since as a unique body of professional artists. Even today our members can trace their connections to our founding members and the Meldrum School.

This year’s ‘Return to Albert Street’ will showcase our present members’ work alongside a selection of past member paintings in the stunningly renovated VAS Galleries.

To add to the excitement, regular painting demonstrations, lectures and guided talks will also be held in the galleries.

The TMPS is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious arts organisations reaching its centenary in 2018. It occupies a unique position in Australian art in that membership is restricted to 20 and is upon invitation only. Many distinguished artists have been members of the group and contributed to its colourful history. The society maintains a strong commitment to the traditions of realist, tonal and impressionist painting.
