‘TURPS GOES WEST’ a group exhibition of work by painters on the Turps Studio Programme 2014-15

The Turps Studio Programme is an artist-led painting programme. With a supported studio environment, peer-led learning, talks and visitors together with dedicated mentors, it provides painter’s with a period of time to refocus and reengage with their work. The sixteen painters showing at Edel Assanti are the most recent to complete the programme working together in the Turps studios beneath the brutalist towers of Taplow House, part of South London’s iconic Aylesbury Estate.
