‘Contemporary British Painting’ is an artist led organisation which explores and promotes current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications and the donation of paintings to art museums.
We founded the The Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016, an annual prize promoting the best of contemporary painting produced in the UK. For the 2019 prize the show will be hosted at Huddersfield Art Gallery and is open for submissions here
