Freeland’s Foundation is launching a group exhibition of emerging painters from UK art schools. Look, will provide the painters with a vital platform from which to present work, and will place significance on the medium which has found a recent resurgence in popularity. The exhibition will showcase artists who are pushing the boundaries of paint and celebrates the diversity of approaches to the medium in contemporary practice.
